"While this is a play about the power of family and love, it is finally a play about self destruction and creation. At its heart is Jhana, whose character begs the question whether the other characters, in their own ways, are any less handicapped. She's good company - funny, driven, passionate and yearning for the same things those around her yearn for - if they can get over their preconceptions about the mentally handicapped and give her the space to achieve her dreams."--Jacket

"It [the play] chronicles the life of two British families, from the eve of the 20th century to 1933. One family is upstairs, the other downstairs, but it's less a view of the class struggle than a remembrance of things past. People honeymoon on the Titanic, they fight in the war to end all wars, and they seem to entirely avoid the 1920s" --On container of film version

Famous actress Rose Trelawney is willing to give up anything for her sweetheart, Arthur - even her successful theatre career.

Desperate to escape the tedium of her life, she abandons her husband and returns to the stage, only to discover that her stint in reality has left her unable to perform in popular melodramas. Pinero's comedy premiered at the Royal Court Theatre in 1898; it shows the transition from the melodrama popular in the mid-nineteenth century to the more realistic drawing room comedies of a later period
