When Deeley and his wife Kate are visited by her old friend Anna, tensions bubble up as memories are used for more than just reminiscing.
Deeley and his wife Kate are visited by Anna, an old friend of Kate’s, who they haven’t seen in over 20 years. Anna launches into recollecting memories of concerts and other bohemian haunts the two women shared while young and living together in London. When the memories become more than just stories and prove to be a tool to vie for Kate’s attention, Deeley also begins to bring up stories that are almost too clear to be true. However it’s Kate’s memory that gives the play its shocking conclusion.
