Summary
Gunpowder is a three part historical drama based on the 1605 Gunpowder plot to blow up the Houses of Parliament, London. Robert Catesby is a committed Catholic at a time when Protestant England persecutes Catholics relentlessly. The authorities, lead by King James's Spymaster-in-Chief Robert Cecil, hunt down, torture and execute priests while lay Catholics are subject to oppression and the loss of their property. They must practice their religion in secret, risking imprisonment, fines, harassment and even death. Unable to stand by while his coreligionists suffer, Catesby starts to recruit friends and relatives, swearing them to secrecy as he devises an audacious plan
