Why do people make the wrong decisions in matters of love ? This is the life dilemma that prize-winning playwright Christopher Hampton focuses on in this intelligent, witty play about sexual manners and manipulation. Ann has tried to free herself from Dave by taking on a new lover, Patrick, while Dave is away in Iraq. Now back in London, Dave is enraged. He is determined to win back his girl, forcing Ann to choose between the two young men. Will she return to charismatic Dave who abuses and cheats on her, or stay with nice-but-dull Patrick? First staged in London in 1976, the play was revived successfully in 2007 in this updated version. “This smart, hip play cuts deceptively deep.”
