Michaelmas Week 8
Richard and Sarah seem to epitomise the respectable 1950s married couple. But beneath the bourgeois veneer lurk voracious sexual appetites. Sarah entertains a lover daily while Richard visits his whore. The deception at the core of their relationship eats away from within and the pretended life they have lived together for 10 years quickly disintegrates. ‘The Lover’ is above all about the relationship which can be the closest and also the most fraught of all: that between two lovers.
