§ Dramatis Personae Percy Shelley (m), 19, aristocratic son of Timothy Shelley; Timothy Shelley (m) 58, father of Percy Shelley.

§ Synopsis “Percy, later to be one of England’s great poets, is a largely unknown radical and poet at age nineteen. His father, Timothy, is a conservative British gentleman living on an enormous estate. Timothy detests Percy's radicalism in politics, religion, and sexual morality. Percy, who lives off his father's purse-strings, has come to his father to make a financial proposition that will put an end to his constant begging for cash from the family estate.

§ Comment “The scene portrayed in this play illuminates the intergenerational conflict between the father and son as they argue about politics, religion, money, and marriage as they unravel the layers of their relationship, exposing the fact neither one could ever really love and accept the other. • One scene. • Premiered in the Gettysburg College One-Act Play Festival, 2003. Subsequently produced at Muhlenberg College, 2004. • Peter Langman’s plays cover a wide range of cultural and historical material, including British Romantic poets, Scottish folktales, Native American history, the Holocaust, and more. Several of his plays have received recognition in national contests.”

§ Themes class, generation gap, father-son relationship, history, money, morality, parent-child relationship, poet, religion, Shelley (Percy Bysshe Shelley, English poet, 1792–1822).
