Broadway and the West End applauded this intensely clear-sighted and compassionate play about a love affair. Kyra is surprised to see the son of her former lover at her apartment in a London slum. He hopes she will reconcile with his distraught, now widowed, father. Tom, a restless, self-made restaurant and hotel tycoon, arrives later that evening, unaware of his son’s visit. Kyra, who was his invaluable business associate and a close family friend until his wife discovered their affair, has since found a vocation teaching underprivileged children. Is the gap between them unbridgeable, or can they resurrect their relationship?

This play affects me deeply, dealing as it does with the complexity of relationships: It is a play about how hard it is to be honest with one another, the mistaken perceptions we have of one another, of ourselves.   How we run from our true feelings, dismiss the feelings of others for our own convenience, how we take out our anger and frustration on others... in short, this brilliant play is about how difficult it is to love, to genuinely love another person.  
All too real, too familiar, and expressed by the playwright in dialogue so tragically true, it hurts like hell.  And yet (the play reminds us)... we have ourselves... ourselves to understand, our inner selves to listen to, to be guided by. I ask myself if this is enough for me. On some days I feel it is; on others, I feel it is not. This play is an overwhelming and memorable experience!
