Brass

Show Summary

Brass depicts the lives of two families at opposite ends of the social spectrum in 1930’s England. One is the Hardacres: wealthy, living in the big house at the top of the hill, looking down on everybody else, and the other is the Fairchilds: employed by the Hardacres, they live in a tiny tract house down at the bottom of the hill. Despite the differences in class and wealth, however, plenty of sexual intermingling takes place. Bradley Hardacre, played by Timothy West, owner of the coal mine, the cotton mill, shipyard, aircraft factory and much else - even the munitions factory. He strikes the perfect character as the cigar puffing, ruthless, greedy, wily, blunt, and lusting after power, money and women at the same time. Lady Patience Hardacre played by Caroline Blakiston is self-pitying and gin-dependent. Their marital relationship is a disastrous sham; indeed, to ward off any unlikely attempt by her husband at pursuance of his marital rights she has convinced him that she must remain confined to a wheelchair, whereas, in reality, she is a walking cauldron of desire.moreless
