Moses Trod by Stephen Morley
‘It was the hills that made him...’ so begins a drama of contrasts where the characters from two generations intertwine through the life of Mark Hunter, a child of the Second World War whose life takes him from his native Cumberland to the City of London encountering music, wealth, women, good times and bad as he struggles to come to terms with his life, his love and so leave the world a better place than he found it. Mark is helped on his way through the decades by fellow musicians, business men and bankers, but it is the next generation, the twin daughters of his business partner, and his own estranged family, that hold the keys to understanding his world. Beneath this fast flowing story lies Moses, a tramp who wanders the streets and hills weaving together the threads of an unfolding drama that brings together the art of beauty, madness, truth, lies, greed and humility in a rich picture of a society that is forever changing and populated by characters searching for an idyll that proves as elusive as it is compulsive. Finally, Mark returns to the hills that made him.
