This book introduces the reader to the work of the neglected Welsh dramatist J.O. Francis, a major figure in the amateur dramatic circles in Wales in the early 20th century. The book argues that Francis's work displays a particular ethical response to Wales, which aims for a realistic depiction of the nation without subscribing to widely available stereotypes. Francis's work has been foundational for drama-writing in the 20th and the 21st century and is here for the first time analysed in its context of Welsh amateur drama.
