Set in Cornwall in the late 1940’s, and set against the values of respect and morality
of the time, the play explores love, loss, dashed hopes, forbidden desires and the
underlying tensions between the characters and the misunderstandings of family
Stella, a widow and woman of considerable gifts and beauty, regularly rejects
proposals of marriage from her neighbour, Robert. Cherry, Stella’s daughter, brings
home her successful artist husband, Evan, and Stella is shocked by the bohemian
incompleteness of their marriage. She finds herself attracted to Evan, as he is to
her, and soon they are passionately in love. Much is left unspoken although Evan
eventually compels Stella to admit her feelings. Will they succumb to them, or won’t
they? Mrs Tucket, her daily, and Jimmy, her son, bring some light relief.
