On an evening in 1932 Robert and Freda Caplan host a dinner party for their colleagues and friends, all executives at a transatlantic publishing company. Young, beautiful and successful they have the world at their feet. Then a cigarette box and an ill-considered remark spark off a relentless series of revelations and other, more dangerous secrets are painfully exposed. As the truth spills out about the suicide of Robert's clever, reckless brother, and the group's perfect lives begin to crumble, the cost of professional and social success becomes frighteningly plain.

Tony (18Sep14): the play may be dated, but it would still be an interesting evening - perhaps because of that - if it were not that the performers, particularly all but one of the men, were so wooden and stiff. Under-rehearsed?
Ian (16Sep14): Cast do their best with a play that is very out of date and stilted when compared with modern dramas.
