This was the National Theatre's 2005 Christmas show - a dramatisation of the Whitbread award-winning children's book from an award-winning playwright

Set in the 18th century, Coram Boy is a tale of two cities - Gloucester and London - and a tale of two boys: Toby, saved from an African slave ship, and Aaron, the illegitimate heir to a great estate

It's also a tale of fathers and sons - slave-trader, Otis, and his son Meshak; and landowner Sir William Ashbrook and the son he disinherits

'A rich and almost Gothic drama' ~ Philip Pullman, The Guardian
