Dallas Sweetman

(2008)
A novel by

 
 
From his grave in the precincts of Canterbury Cathedral, Dallas Sweetman is called to give account. He tells a story of love and death, jealousy and miraculous happenings, of the divided loyalties of Protestants and Catholics in the Elizabethan Age. Before us, his judges, Dallas seeks to justify the actions of his life. But is he telling the truth? And can he be forgiven? The lost tradition of staging new plays at Canterbury Cathedral, most famously T. S. Eliot's "Murder in the Cathedral", was revived with the premiere of Sebastian Barry's "Dallas Sweetman" in September 2008.
