Fire and Phoenix

by Kate Glover

Read by AWL on 4 July 2016

The play opens in the bakery of Thomas Farynor, Kings Baker, just before midnight on 1st September 1666. Thomas assures his daughter that he has checked the fires...

The Fire starts within hours; We follow Thomas and others as they flee, homeless, from a raging inferno, driven by a ferocious East wind. Samuel Pepys witnesses and records the horror. The people lose everything and camp out at Moorfields. Foreigners and Papists are blamed for the fire and so are ferociously attacked. St Pauls burns: a vision of Hell.

A Frenchman is hanged for starting the Fire but was he really guilty? What about Farynor? Pepys has his suspicions...

And is there any hope?
