Miss Brown to You
Miss Brown to You is a play by Alan Harris, set during World War II which follows the plight of Emily, a young woman with Down’s syndrome who is evacuated from the dangers of the city to a small Mid-Wales village to live with a fierce aunt she hardly knows. Here she has to come to terms with a new life full of unknown challenges, loneliness and prejudice. A strong bond develops with her cousin as they learn to share ideas through music and she draws comfort from the wild beauty of the surrounding landscape. Here she meets Stanley, a desperate and isolated young man who is sleeping rough. Both are outsiders and a secret friendship grows between them. Meanwhile her aunt has her own demons to fight and stark realisations to confront as a web of lies starts to unravel.
