Martin, a craggy, hard-working Yorkshire landowner and bachelor, lives with his punctilious spinster sister Ivy on the farm they inherited from their parents. Desperate for companionship, Martin pays for a Filipino woman, Maria - whom he has discovered through a video-dating agency - to come and live with them. Maria, shrewd, intelligent and warm-hearted, desperately wants to start a new life with a "respectable English gentleman farmer". But Ivy resents the intrusion, and on the day of Maria and Martin's wedding, she digs up information about Maria's past, with shocking consequences for them all. From the author of "Beulah", Robson has created a play about East and West in which a lonely, unfulfilled man and a resourceful woman come together in an attempt to mend their broken lives.
