Clare Actors presents...
By David Hare
Lent Week 0
One dismal winter’s evening, in her dingy London flat Kyra Hollis, a twenty-something school teacher, receives a visit from her ex-lover, Tom Sergeant whom she has not seen since the end of their six year love affair.
Several years her senior — Tom is a charming and successful restauranteur whose wife Alice, has recently died from Cancer, driving him to a life of apathy and nostalgia for his past with Kyra.
As the evening progresses, the two cook and converse, attempting to reignite the passion and spark they once had. The conversation is intimate and explosive as they reminisce, confront truths never before addressed and rediscover all that made them fall in love. As morning dawns, the snow begins to fall, and the Spag Bol grows cold both their futures hang in the balance.
David Hare’s Olivier Award winning play delves deep into the inner workings of conversation and human intimacy.
