Description

Suffering the aftermath of the war and foreseeing the dawning of new ones, the Oxford Roof Climbers, the Benevolent Order of, lay siege to a sleepy university town. A stand against stands, a dare to end all daring, a doing that protests doings; the two haunted men—armed with a talent for practical jokes—grasp at love and dare to imagine a new world. The Oxford Roof Climber's Rebellion, despite its harmless beginnings, brings the Arab Revolt dangerously close to the heart of the Empire.

Winner of the 2007 CAA Carol Bolt Award
