London in the 1950s. A mysterious house, home to a family that has seen better days, will not yield its secrets. And a love affair turns to tragedy... Greene, one of the foremost writers of the 20th century, based the play on his own passionate but doomed affairs, and his conflicted view of Catholicism.

Author of world-famous novels Brighton Rock, The Power and the Glory and The End of the Affair, Graham Greene (1904-1991) is a familiar figure in twentieth-century English literature. After studying at Balliol College, Oxford, he worked as a journalist and sub-editor before publishing his first novel, The Man Within, in 1929. An insatiable traveller, with the outbreak of war Greene began espionage work for the Foreign Office in Sierra Leone, and continued to travel widely after war had ended. These experiences fed directly into the generic range of his fiction, which consists of thrillers (or 'entertainments', as he called them) as well as the serious philosophical and 'Catholic novels' for which he is best-known. As well as fiction, Greene produced a large body of work, including plays, literary criticism, and biographies. In the words of William Golding, he was 'the ultimate chronicler of twentieth-century man's consciousness and anxiety'.
