Additional Info

Hume Cronyn and Jessica Tandy starred on Broadway in this moving chronicle of a husband and wife, from their wedding night in 1890 until they leave the house that has been their home, thirty-five years later. They fret and quarrel, laugh, cry, and make love in the same room in which they began their married life. Standing throughout the evening is the old fourposter, silent witness to all.
