    Jennifer Worth came from a sheltered background when she became a midwife in the Docklands in the 1950s. The conditions in which many women gave birth just half a century ago were horrifying, not only because of their grimly impoverished surroundings but also because of what they were expected to endure. But while Jennifer witnessed brutality and tragedy, she also met with amazing kindness and understanding, tempered by a great deal of Cockney humour.

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.
