Additional Info

Albert Finney starred in London and Chicago in this play by the author of The Dresser and Interpreters. He played two roles: the adult Leonard Lands, a South African pianist, and Ike, Leonard's father. In Act I, Leonard's mother is finally able to send him overseas for a proper musical education after Ike dies. Act II takes place thirty five years later. Leonard is in a London recording studio with hisalienated teenaged son (played by the actor who was Leonard in Act I). The son wants to return to South Africa, a place Leonard will not go because of the political situation. For Leonard there is no meaning outside of his music; for his son there is no life in England and he, like his father, must follow his own destiny.
