Interior Set

This drama employs an unusual structure: a narrator named Sir instructs the characters on how to reconvene and reconstruct a day several years previous. Eventually the characters plead with Sir to alter the point of no return which changed all their lives.

When he returns to his hometown in Ireland, he discovers that his young second wife has had an affair with a dissolute son from his first marriage.
