Author: Fry, Christopher

To coincide with the centenary of his birth in December 1907, Oberon is pleased to be publishing three volumes of plays by Christopher Fry, one of the most influential playwrights of Britain in the twentieth century. This third volume of Fry's original plays brings together his only fully-fledged tragedy - "The Firstborn", based on the Biblical story of the plagues of Egypt - and his six one-act plays.

Thor, with Angels: M9 F3. A Jutish farmstead. Period AD 596. At the time of St Augustine's mission to Britain, a young Christian soldier, Hoel, is captured by the Jutes. He is threatened with death, and later crucified, but others are converted through these events to Christianity, forsaking the Norse gods such as Thor. As the play ends the voices of Augustine's men are heard singing in the distance.
