Two short plays about the shocks and surprises of adulterous love, written by two of the 20th century’s finest playwrights – Arthur Miller (All My Sons, Death of a Salesman) and Brian Friel (Faith Healer, Dancing at Lughnasa).
Elegy for a Lady tells of an encounter between a young boutique owner and a man in search of a gift for his elusive mistress. As the shop owner tries to help him choose, they both reveal unexpected confidences and eventually share closeness that both have been missing.
In The Yalta Game, Dimitri, a middle-aged serial seducer is playing ‘The Yalta Game’ – watching other tourists at a fashionable resort and making wild guesses about their business - when he spots Anna, a young newly-wed holidaying alone, leaving her hotel. Before long the two holidaymakers, divided by age and experience, indulge in a brief affair. Or do they?
Both plays weave a haunting and emotional spell as the line blurs between truth and fiction.
