Editorial Reviews

In Graham Greene's masterful 1953 examination of the mysteries and quirks of love, family, and faith, a seemingly normal romantic couple, voiced with easy naturalism and subtle intensity by Julian Sands and Kristen Potter, return to the woman's gothic girlhood home in London. There they find an elderly, infirm uncle and two maiden aunts who have a number of secrets to keep. Peerless British character actors W. Morgan Sheppard, Jane Carr, and Judy Geeson have a wonderful time finding the dark comic rhythms and eerie pathos in every line. But when her lover's wife appears on the scene, one can hear in Potter's clear, fragile delivery the tragedy that most likely is waiting in the wings. A classic of modern British theater.

Publisher's Summary

London in the 1950s: a mysterious house, home to a family that has seen better days, will not yield its secrets, and a love affair turns to tragedy. Graham Greene, one of the foremost writers of the 20th century, based this play on his own passionate, doomed affairs and his conflicted view of Catholicism.

Another Green Great

Not my usual audio drama. I do not go in for Religious dogma, but I did enjoy the play. It was funny with a serious theme of love & belief. The story is about pain of love & moral thinking. Death is the central theme.

It took me 3 sittings to actually listen to the very end & I enjoyed the play.
It was obviously recorded live on a stage which gives the atmosphere you are sat in the circular watching.

The actors are first class, though one of the characters continues her dialogue throughout using a grating unnatural high pitch voice & you want to slap her.
