The Fifteen Streets – In northern England around 1900, the worker John O’Brien lives near poverty in a small house in the worker’s district. He falls in love with Mary, the teacher of his highly intelligent younger sister Kathy and daughter of a rich family. Their love is doomed by the social difference, but the vigorous Mary refuses to allow outer circumstances destroying their love.
Gritty and gripping
Haunting beautiful story
Such a WONDERFUL production. Very moving and atmospheric, authentic. When the haunting music came on at the end i remembered the stories and characters that we’d seen in the show. It reminded me that there were people who were like the o Brians in real life northern England and,like the people in real life, the characters have all been and gone too. The acting was great, even the smaller roles were great. This was made in 1989 and it was well made. I don’t think they’d make such a brilliant job nowadays. It would be less tastefully made and more politically correct. Oh and the wonderful Claire Holman was amazing in every way
