  §  Dramatis Personae Peter (m), 40, Julie’s husband; Calvin (m), 40, Anne’s husband; Julie (f), 38, Peter’s wife; Anne (f), 38, Calvin’s wife.

  §  Synopsis “On the day of friend Tony’s funeral, Calvin is very bitter. He sees his own life fading away with no meaning. The shallow life of two friends only manages to sink him further into the depths, where he examines why life is so meaningless. Lynne and Calvin announce their marriage is splitting because of an affair with the recently deceased. This intrigues their friends, but the revelation that it was Calvin who was having the affair and the knowledge that Tony died from AIDS, quickly breaks the final friendship apart, leading to an obvious tragic conclusion.

  §  Comment “Single scene, as simple or as complex as desired. Needs one or two doors, one implied window in the ‘fourth wall.’   •  Has been performed numerous times in the UK.”

  §  Themes  affair, ageing, bisexuality, bitterness, death, funeral, HIV/AIDS, homosexuality, infidelity, marriage,  meaninglessness, prejudice.
