"The original 2002 London production of Sir David Hare’s play about the wreckage of a long-running love triangle starred the famed Judi Dench and Maggie Smith. Here, two of Portland’s most formidable actors, Sharonlee McLean and Gretchen Corbett, step into those estimable shoes, facing off as the wife and the other woman in a drama that conjures what the  critic Michael Billington called “the long adagio of late middle age.” - Oregon Arts Watch

 Frances was the dutiful wife. Madeleine was the not-so-dutiful lover. When the two women meet face-to-face, they must confront their past with the man they unknowingly shared. Starring Portland favorites Sharonlee McLean (The Receptionist and 25 others at The Armory) and Gretchen Corbett (Nurse Ratched in One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest at The Armory).
