Description
Description:

Norman McKinnel in his play presents a very kind hearted bishop and his self sacrificial nature. Bishop is not rich but shows generosity to all. He has donated everything except Candlesticks gifted by his dying mother. His sister Persome is very worldly as she understands manipulative politics of her times. She always tries hard to avoid unwanted guests whom she treats with disgust. One cold night, a strange guest barges in.
He is a fugitive who needs food and shelter for night. Bishop entertains him despite of his ill mannered and very dangerous behaviour. He feeds him well and assures him of his utmost personal safety. Fugitive shows no remorse for his unwanted presence. He eyes on Candlesticks.
