This celebrated English drama by the author of Butley and Otherwise Engaged is based on a famous murder case involving a lonely divorced woman who has married a man thirty years her senior. However, his age and increasing deafness make her lonelier than before, and in desperation she takes up with a young man who has been hired as a gardner. She is basically using him as an outlet for her desperate sexual and emotional longing. He, however, falls for her and, in a moment of passion, kills her husband with a pair of garden shears. Molly tries to take the blame, but the court finds her out and, in the end, she is once again alone. A success in London's West End, Molly was produced to great acclaim by New York's Hudson Guild Theatre.
