About this show

Written in 1978. Plenty is centred on the life of a woman whose experiences helping the French Resistance behind enemy lines during WWII result in her finding the reality of her post-war life mundane and frustrating. Through snapshots of Susan Traherne's eyes, David Hare explores and observes a country's shift in moral standards as it struggles to redefine itself whilst choking on 'plenty' after a war, and observes Susan as she drifts into madness, taking her loving husband with her.
