East Lane Theatre, Vale Farm, Watford Road, Sudbury, Middlesex, HA0 3HG         Registered Charity Number 1183134


by Simon Woods

The play is set in 1988 in the kitchen/breakfast room of Robin Hesketh, a Tory M.P. and Diana Hesketh, his wife. They seem ill-suited, as they spend much of the early part of the play locked in sharp, savage, often very funny verbal combat. As the play proceeds skeletons, political and personal, come tumbling out of the cupboard until we finally learn the awful, moving truth.

This is not so much a play about politics, as a play about the political and the personal.
