Astrophysicist Henry and his wife invite his superior colleague Henry Findoris and his wife to dinner, hoping to increase Henry’s chances of promotion. However, the Findoris arrive 24 hours earlier than expected… Each act was a repetition of a set of events given a different emphasis and interpretation, bringing vividly to life a fascinating insight into human interactive relationships where a slight alteration in thought or deed results in very different outcomes.
First-rate direction created visually impressive pictures where the actors’ physicality and position on stage mirrored the status of each couple between themselves and against each other, as well as making the most of the many planned pauses requested by the playwright.
It is impossible to pick out individual performances with all four on-stage actors (and one off-stage vocalist!) creating significantly different characters in each act, enhanced with the subtle, complex nuances of facial expressions and dialogue delivery.
