Jerry is a literary agent; Emma runs an art gallery; Robert is a publisher. Emma and Robert are married and Jerry is Robert’s best friend, but Emma and Jerry have a seven-year affair and Robert has secrets of his own.
Harold Pinter’s clever and witty portrayal of deception and desire was inspired, in part, by the writer’s affair with BBC presenter Joan Bakewell. The original production won the Laurence Olivier Award for Best New Play.
