Summary

I know. No country matters. Not in the kitchen.
Not on a Sunday. Not in England.

After six lonely weeks with nobody but her disabled boy for company, Rita Affleck, wealthy, beautiful and consumed by jealous love, welcomes home her husband Alfred. But, far from the passionate reunion she so craves, there is only torment as Alfred’s possessive half-sister arrives, and he announces his great revelation.

I want things how they were … My perfect poet …
1945, one afternoon in London – on the floor,
every last undiluted drop of you.

Taking Ibsen’s Little Eyolf as the inspiration for a passionate and tragic tale of obsessive love, set in 1950s England, Samuel Adamson’s Mrs Affleck opened at the National Theatre, London, in January 2009.
