Great Electrical Revolution
Granddad left Ireland in the twenties, dreaming of a country estate in a land untouched by politics. Instead, he ended up in “a crazy town full of rum runners and trainmen.”
The story recreates a time when families took a refuge in the magic world of radio. When Granddad’s old Marconi is short-circuited by the stingy power company, so begins “the great electrical revolution,” and a good-natured comedy that pits the “working class” against the “capitalists”.
The Great Electrical Revolution is a charming story about a family that almost succeeds in toppling the powers-that-be.
