William Trevor - My House in Umbria

A train journey in Italy sparks devastation, but a new purpose for one passenger - Mrs Delahunty.
Starring Prunella Scales as Mrs Delahunty, Peter Jeffrey as The General, Richard Pearce as Ocmar and Sean Barrett as Quinty.

Mrs Delahunty - she's never actually been married, but 'Mrs' suits her better than 'Miss' - has been a Madame in Africa and is now a succesful romantic novelist. When a young American girl, an elderly British general and a German traveller survive a terrorist bomb attack on an Italian train, Mrs Delahunty finds a new purpose in life caring for this unlikely group.

Written and dramatised by William Trevor.

Producer: Shaun MacLoughlin
