Architect Martin confides a secret to a friend... as the identity of Sylvia is
revealed, his life falls apart...
Ian Rickson directs a play by Edward Albee.
Not available. Professional reviewers are unanimous in their praise of the
performances, whether a befuddled Damian Lewis (Martin) unable to find somewhere
for his glasses, Sophie Okonedo (Stevie) the wife betrayed by... or impressive
debut of son Archie Madekwe, there is a lot of fine acting reported.
