By Edmund Gosse, dramatised by Nick Warburton.
A uniquely frank memoir of a Victorian childhood.
Edmund Gosse was raised in the strictly non-conformist Plymouth Brethren.
Edmund is baptised at the precocious age of ten.
But as he grows, the lonely boy is torn between love for his charismatic father, and the terrible secret in his heart.
