Abstract

After long hard years in the Old Brit'n, will Moses Aloetta ever save enough money to realise his dreams of returning to his native Trinidad? Not if those 'damn vagabonds and reprobates', Sir Galahad, Cap and Harris, his so-called friends, have anything to do with it. These seven one act plays bring to dramatic life some of the characters who first appeared in Selvon's classic novels of exile, The Lonely Londoners and Moses Ascending. Dreams, schemes, summer gaiety and winter disappointments: the experiences of the parents and grandparents of the Black British children of today are portrayed with Selvon's characteristic humour and poignancy.

The plays are edited with an introduction and notes by Susheila Nasta.
