In 1950s London, Mr. Pym, a shy middle-aged academic, rents a room from divorcee Mrs. Fields. Alone upstairs, Mr. Pym dreams of the perfect woman: young, beautiful, and exotic. Downstairs on the sofa, a book and a glass of sherry her only companions, Mrs. Fields longs for warmth and human contact. As their lives begin to intersect, the two learn that they share an interest in Tolstoy, a common affection for Africa, and a lonely existence. Eventually desire overcomes their inhibitions, and the couple must deal with the painful--and sometimes painfully funny--consequences of intimacy. Graceful tender, and erotic, "The Walls of Africa" is an exploration of loneliness and emotional connection by one of Canada's most innovative and original playwrights.
