When the Wind Blows : Play, Paperback Book


This is an off beat version of the famous English anti nuclear cartoon parable.

Jim and Hilda Bloggs hear that a nuclear strike is headed their way.

Armed with government leaflets, they construct a refuge with the solid cheerfulness they felt during the blitz.

Trusting in the powers that be, they emerge after the bombing and wait for government assistance.

Radiation sickness takes them, still loving each other and uttering prayers.
