Through A Cloud archive1656. A peaceful England is still coming to terms with its freedom from the Monarchy after the bitter ravages of revolution and civil war. A picnic in the woods is the very unparliamentary setting for a meeting between two key revolutionaries: the blind poet, John Milton and long term friend Oliver Cromwell. When they're interrupted by a ranting wild man, a heated debate arises between those in power with jaded aspirations and those who sit on the sidelines with their perfect ideologies. Once the dust of civil war has settled and the blood of those lives lost has been washed away, has anything really changed? Does indecision and uncertainty compromise all that has been fought for?
