At the turn of the last century, May Miller is sent to work as a maid for her father's old commander; Henry Spritely. At Fairview house she finds not the respectable haven her father hoped for her, away from the poverty and slums of Portsea. For she falls prey to the contemptuous lust of the Spritely’s spoilt only son, George. Following her father’s accident, May is now the only breadwinner of the family. Forced to accept her position to save her family from the much-feared Portsea Island Workhouse; her future looks bleak. May vows to fulfil her dream of one day owning a flower shop; it is this hope that gives her the strength to struggle on. Set in the latter years of the Victorian era, the Blanket Hornpipe portrays both a humorous, saucy, and sadly realistic portrayal of Victorian life.
