What business have Mrs. Artminster and her son Jerry in the Home Counties that necessitates a long stay in a small-town hotel in the off-season? The explanation they give the proprietor is obviously contrived, but he has his reasons for allowing them to stay.

In Simon Gray’s first play for the stage - which opened at Wyndham’s Theatre in October, 1967 with Sir Alec Guinness in the lead - the truth is complex and its revelation electrifying.
