Miss Gomez And The Brethren




Miss Gomez creates havoc in Crow Street when she predicts a hideous sex crime

Miss Gomez, a traumatized orphan from Jamaica, has given up her nightclub work and got religion. She has found a new life through her postal correspondence with the Church of the Brethren of the Way back in her homeland.
But when she moves into run-down Crow Street and starts broadcasting her revelations and prophecies about the residents of the street, all hell breaks loose. And sensationally, soon after she predicts a hideous sex crime, young Prudence, the pub landlord's teenage daughter, disappears.
A brilliant black comedy about the dreamers and survivors of city life.
