The Devil's Disciple, a compelling drama set in 1777.
A brilliant version of Shaw's play set in the second year of the American War for Independence, shown on Theatre Night on British television. Produced by Shaun Sutton and directed by David Jones.
Mike Gwilym takes the title role with attitude and a sneer! Elizabeth Spriggs is the long suffering mother (of Richard Dudgeon) and Susan Wooldridge as the Reverend's wife both are on top form, as is Ian Richardson as General Burgoyne.
Patrick Stewart plays The Reverand Anderson who follows his heart in all things and practises what he preaches. Larry lamb is the worldly wise soldier with a wink and a nod - say no more! The remainder of the cast give able support in what is a most enjoyable portrayal of the good and the bad (depending on where you stand) and Christian values.
