From West End
Teddy Platt, whose marriage is spectacularly on the rocks, is visited by the creepy Gavin Ring-Mayne, who is trying to persuade him to stand for Parliament. In the original production at Scarborough, and later at the National Theatre, the play was performed in adjacent auditoria simultaneously with Garden.
