Beyond Desire is an original story inspired by the novel Maurice by EM Forster (Room With A View, A Passage to India, Howard’s End) and is set within the grounds of Dovedale Manor, a country house in 1910 belonging to the Pemberton Family. At a time when a nervous Edwardian England awaits news of its sick King, Edward VII, the sudden death of family patriarch Edward Frances Pemberton rekindles a dark secret from the family’s past; a secret which will have deep impact on the entire household.
