Once Upon An Island... An elegiac tale of a defiant friendship and a doomed love affair. When runaway Richard Wigboe returns to his island home after 19 missing years, it is to await the woman he loves from whom he was separated in a Japanese civilian internment camp. Turned away by his embittered father, Ben, he finds a friend in his lonely teenage step-brother Joe Coe. Set in the wilds of Eastern England in 1947, the cast of characters includes two female artists, a half-mad eccentric landowner, a shy bachelor farmer in want of a wife and a displaced Polish soldier seeking the girl who has borne his baby.show more
