Based on How Green Was My Valley by Richard Llewellyn
The show takes place in the memory of Protestant minister David Griffith, recalling conflict within the Morgan family over the possible formation of a miners' union within the village, and the romance between Griffith himself and Angharad of the Morgans, who ultimately marries the mine owner instead.
Trivia & History
An article that appeared in the New York Times on Nov. 25, 1966, stated that a revised version the show would be produced by the American Conservatory Theatre in San Francisco the following April. The revised script would be closer to the original script as it was "before pre-Broadway tinkering began." Gerald Freedman, who co-authored the book and directed the original Broadway production, would again direct, and Robert Weede was to star as Gwillym Morgan. As far as we can determine, the production was canceled.
