Today's episode dives into the Final Draft archive to rediscover Robert Lukin's An Everlasting Sunday.
An Everlasting Sunday describes the arrival of seventeen year-old Radford at Goodwin Manor. It is the English winter of 1962, a cold snap so severe that it will come to be known as ‘The Big Freeze’, and snow blankets the country. Radford is immediately suspicious of his new home and companions and vows to remain aloof. Goodwin Manor is a home for boys ‘found by trouble’ and there is a saying that it only takes two things to get there; a reason, and a final straw.
