This dreamlike play will leave you wondering whether to trust your own eyes. There are enigmatic newcomers in town: the dark, intense, 'Ponza', his shy, rather eccentric mother-in-law 'Signora Frola'; and his reclusive young wife. No one understands their bizarre living arrangements. Everyone has a different theory as to the truth - and no one will countenance any other explanation. No one, that is, except for the wry and elegant 'Laudisi'. He mischievously offers to establish the truth - and takes delight in his neighbours' growing frustration as they watch: 'fantasy and reality dancing together, rather gracefully in fact - and suddenly you can't tell the difference between them'.Performers Joan Plowright (Signora Frola), Oliver Ford Davies (Laudisi), Anna Carteret (Signora Sirelli), Liza Tarbuck (Amalia), Brid Brennan (Cini), Sian Brooke (Dina), Darrell D'Silva (Ponza), Gawn Grainger (Signor Sirelli), Lolly Susi (Signora Nenni), Barry Stanton (Agazzi).
