Abstract:

Passions flare and tempers rise when three couples cross paths at a country house one weekend. It all begins with the arrival of Reg and his wife, Sarah. They've come to give Reg's younger sister, Annie, a few days' break from caring for their bedridden mother. However, Annie confides that she's seeing someone, not Tom, the single young vet who's pursuing her, but her brother-in-law, Norman. Appalled, Sarah informs Norman's wife, Ruth, and all hell breaks loose. Ayckbourn's trilogy tells the same weekend story from three different vantage points in the house and garden.
