Victoriana: A Trio of Melodramas

£3.99

Product description

Three very exciting plays from the 1890's Work and Wages. Radford's steel industry is on strike while the boss' son has a greater interest in his private trysts than he has in the welfare of the workers. Riots, murder and sabotage seem to be the rule of the day. The malefactors eventually receive their just deserts. A Big Fortune. Skulduggery fools an honest man into poverty. He escapes to the Americas and there regains his fortune. All is not well, as on his return he finds the real felon has outwitted him again. With the aid of an obliging police detective the wrongs are put to right but only after a hair-raising and exciting chase. A London Mystery. An engineer is murdered and an innocent man framed. A faithful servant stumbles upon the key to solving the mystery. A twist of fate reveals that the murdered man has himself left the most damning evidence.

Oxfam Bookshop St Albans

Oxfam is the UK's largest second hand bookseller, but it doesn't stop there. We sell a great range of donated music as well. Whether it's vintage LPs or the latest modern fiction you want, we're well worth a look! We also sell greetings cards for every occasion. And of course we have some great stock for sale on Oxfam's Online Shop, too. Call us to find out more.

Could you help us by collecting donations from donors homes? Our shop receives many offers of generous donations that we have to turn down as we do not have volunteers able to collect. We would ask you to collect in your own car, at your convenience and reimburse your petrol costs. It might be a couple of times a month and would make a really big difference to our ability to make money.
