"The Three Weddings of Benjamin Howes"
Based on real people in the 1820s, but embracing issues of today – the rights of women, mental health, miscarriage, domestic violence, social mobility, exploitation in the workplace, ethnic disadvantage.
But it doesn’t read like that. It reads like a fascinating story.
Based on events which are documented in public records. The Three Weddings happened. The people existed. But everything else – their characters, how they met, why they did what they did, how they came to do things in particular places – is all fiction.
