Coventry, November 1940 ...
Kate Stanley is a headstrong 18-year old training to be a teacher
While waiting for the All-Clear signal from an air raid warning at a railway station, she encounters the stranded Michael, an Oxford University tutor of Romantic Language
It could be the beginning of a straightforward love story, but nothing is straightforward in wartime
Unknown to Kate, Michael has been forced to turn his linguistic skills to deciphering German codes at Bletchley Park
Katie lives with her family in Coventry, a city living under the threat of war
The Stanleys have no idea how close and terrible that threat threat is
But Michael does
Following the story of one family’s harrowing experience of the Coventry Blitz, One Night in November examines the idea that Churchill had advance warning of the attack - was Coventry sacrificed for the greater good?
Or perhaps to provoke and hasten America’s entry into the war?
