It is 1944, a hotel room in Skegness, where Harry and Edie are on their honeymoon. The play presents us with the memories of the now older Edie, allowing us to travel across time, reflecting the uncertainties of life during the forties.
This production was originally presented as part of a Directors’ course in 1993.
