A flat in Ladbroke Grove, West London. 1952
When Hester Collyer is found by her neighbours in the aftermath of a failed suicide attempt, the story of the tempestuous affair with a former RAF pilot and the breakdown of her marriage to a High Court judge bgins to emerge. with it comes a portrait of need, loneliness and long-repressed passion.
Behind the fragile veneer burns a brutal sense of loss and desire in Terence Rattigan's devastating masterpiece.
