7:30pm nightly at Swindon Arts Centre

It's a cold winter's evening and bitter, irascible divorcé Henry is enjoying a scotch and some classical music in glorious solitude. He is soon disturbed, however, by the unwelcome appearance of his son Matthew, bringing with him his new girlfriend, the unappealing punk/Goth Christine.

Matthew is obviously keen for a reconciliation with his father, but Henry is quite happy the way things are, and sparks soon fly — but this is just the beginning, for who should arrive next but Henry's ex-wife, Matthew's mother, Sue! As the cold night wears on Henry and Sue can't help but rake over the ashes of their seemingly dead relationship. To their surprise the faint glow of a new tenderness develops between them and before long Henry is facing some important decisions.


Henry: Adrian Peace               Matthew: Ben Robinson

Christine: Kimberly Evans         Sue: Susan Pearson

This play is based on an 1890's story by Oscar Wilde about Lord Arthur Savile's who is engaged to lovely Sybil Merton.

Her pet chiromantist Podgers has read Lord Arthur's palm and foretold he would commit a murder.

Lord Arthur desires a blissful married life and therefore feels duty bound to get the murder over with first.
