About the play (source: http://www.nationaltheatre.org.uk/):
After six lonely weeks with nobody but her crippled little boy for company, Rita Affleck, wealthy, beautiful and consumed by jealous love, welcomes home her husband Alfred. But, far from the passionate reunion she so craves, there is only torment as Alfred’s possessive half-sister arrives, and he announces his great revelation.
Marianne Elliott directs Claire Skinner in the title role of Samuel Adamson’s new play which takes Ibsen’s Little Eyolf as the inspiration for a passionate and tragic tale of obsessive love, set in 1950s England.|
