This one act play, often considered Rattigan’s masterpiece, tells a story of British reserve where characters develop and and the situation builds to an intense emotional peak that finally reveals the sensitivity behind the stiff upper lip with unexpected strength replacing weakness.
Ill health is forcing Andrew to retire from teaching. His wife despises him for his failures and finds consolation with Frank, a younger teacher. She openly taunts Andrew while Frank watches with disgust and shame. The wife knows she has lost Frank- but even more bitter is the realization he’s now Andrew’s fast friend.
