George Hagen: Tom Bedlam.
Dramatic, whimsical and packed with lively humour, this is a story revolving around Tom Bedlam, who grows up fatherless and poor in South London in the 1860s. Ranging from London to South Africa, from the Boer War to the final months of WWI, Tom Bedlam captures the spirit of the times as it portrays a beguiling hero wrestling with his loyalties, affections and conscience until he realises that the simple bonds of family can prevail against human folly and the march of progress.
