Synopsis: In Sundry Creditors we are presented with a Midlands engineering firm in transition. The firm’s Chairman, Gustavus Lang, a paternal, Quaker-style employer, keen on Works Councils and treating his staff like human beings, dies early on in the story and the reins are passed to his younger brother, Walter. A ruthless, hard-nosed businessman, Walter wastes no time in trying to seize control of the company by becoming the majority shareholder. Understandably, whilst he is busy transforming himself into a tyrant, he fails to notice that his young daughter is running around with one of his factory employees. As opposition starts to mount to Walter’s plans for domination, he has to fight to preserve both his daughter’s honour and his dreams of power and influence.
