A heartbreaking tale of orphans, angels, murder and music – dramatised from the Whitbread Award-winning novel set in 18th-century England.

In 18th-century Gloucestershire, Otis Gardner preys on unmarried mothers, promising to take their babies to Thomas Coram’s hospital for foundling children- but a much worse fate awaits them.

Otis’s downfall is set in train when his half-witted son Meshak falls in love with a young girl, Melissa, and rescues the unwanted son she has had with a disgraced aristocrat. The child is brought up in Coram’s hospital, and proves to have inherited the startling musical gifts of his father – gifts that ultimately bring about his father’s redemption and a heartbreaking family reunion.

Helen Edmundson’s adaptation of Jamila Gavin’s award-winning novel, Coram Boy, was first performed at the National Theatre, London, in 2005. It won the Time Out Live Award for Best Play.
