Honour

by Joanna Murray-Smith

 

“When we see a gold ring on someone’s hand and we want it, we don’t take it, do we?”

 

For Honor and George, the arrival of the self-assured Claudia threatens to wreck a 32-year marriage. But as the power balance starts to shift, the husband, wife, daughter and lover together must face the fundamental question - what is love?

 

Often compared to David Hare’s  Skylight  and Harold Pinter’s  Betrayal,  Honour paints an unflinching portrait of what happens when a secure marriage suddenly stalls, and when the opportunity arises for one life to be revived at the expense of another. Don’t miss this poignant and gripping revival!
