"Finding out who you really are." When the party's over one mysterious guest will force Edward and Lavinia to realise the futility and tragic necessity of their marriage. The couple's realisation has consequences for their friends, especially Edward's mistress Celia, who must confront the potentially vacuous reality of a life lived alone.
