This extraordinary story unfolds in the dim streets of Victorian London's notorious East End. Poverty, squalor and crime fester and proliferate, blighting the lives of all who are unfortunate enough to dwell there. Yet from within the gloom, shines a beacon of light: the light of human dignity. And, sometimes, righteousness, decency and justice win out. In this dramatic play - out of the everlasting human conflict of good versus evil, various giants of their time, immortal beings, come into conflict.
