The piece, which will be staged in the round at the Arcola (the first London production in over 15 years) was never performed during Lawrence's lifetime, and first premiereded at the Royal Court in the 1960s.

It follows a family, the Gascoynes, revelling in the aftermath of a new marriage, before facing up to some news from the past.

The piece has direction by Jack Gamble, design by Louie Whitemore, lighting design by Geoff Hense, sound design by Dinah Mullen with associate direction by Quentin Beroud.
