Passion Play

Peter Nichols
 

A brilliant and disturbing play about middle-aged infidelity.

Review
'Passion Play is brilliant... On the surface, it’s an old, old story: the happy marriage of a middle-aged couple, James and Eleanor, is suddenly blown apart by the infidelity of the husband... But this is a wickedly clever piece and what starts off as funny and racy develops into something far darker and more profound. This is due to the marvellous device of having two Jameses and two Eleanors on stage, one couple talking as might be expected, the other speaking from the mind.' Beryl Bainbridge

So Long Life

Peter Nichols
 
Bristol 1995. It is Alice's 85th birthday. An occasion for celebration. But like many family gatherings, it is also an occasion for parading long-held resentments as her children attempt to persuade her to relinquish her independence and move to a home. But Alice has other plans?

Review
Nichols is the most honest and unsparing of writers... this is a play that speaks wittily and painfully to its audience about both age and family life -  Daily Telegraph
