The Helot’s Tale is a true story. It begins in 1814, in the smog laden streets of London, against the backdrop of a harsh, unjust Dickensian society. We follow Robert Bright and Mary-Ann Goulding as they grow up, struggling to survive. They are destined to meet, but their paths are yet to cross.
The despair of Newgate prison, a death sentence, public hangings, riots, the resurrectionists and a hellish journey for months on the open sea to serve their sentences on an island prison begin their incredible story.
Their stories twist and turn intriguingly through actual historical events, interfacing with real people of the time, creating suspense, drama and adventure.
