"Gorgeous! A real pleasure! A wonderful story. Heartwarming and deeply satisfying on a cold winter night. Kate Burton is charming, intelligent, and spirited as Miss Moffat and Morgan Ritchie burns with a quiet intense power. Will LeBow contributes an amusing portrayal of the Squire and Kristine Nielsen is a hoot."
- The Boston Globe

Idealistic and hardnosed schoolteacher Miss Moffat (played by Kate Burton) creates the first school in a Welsh coal-mining town, and helps an illiterate teenager (played by Ms. Burton’s son Morgan Ritchie) transform from bully to brilliant student.

Nicholas Martin returns to direct this heartwarming classic with his quintessential warmth and humor.

"I'm excited that Nicky and Kate are coming back. I want the Huntington to remain an artistic home for both of them, and with Morgan, we'll introduce Boston to the next generation of this remarkable family of artists." – Peter DuBois

"Kate Burton is dazzling in Nicholas Martin's moving and inspired revival.” – Variety

Approximate Run Time: 2 hours and 20 minutes, including two intermissions
