Five years ago, Haddon Grey was an actor at the zenith of his profession. Now, disabled by a stroke, and too proud to be seen by his friends, colleagues or public, on or off the stage, he lives alone and perhaps in penury, a long way from the city which once acclaimed him. But Thelma Cayley has her own reasons to be concerned for Haddon’s welfare. She hires Jez, a young and inexpert actor, to present himself to the reclusive older man as a potential student. But the lessons on offer are lessons in life; the young student becomes a witness and then a participant in the relationship of two complex and vulnerable people. And in the end, the lessons are not only for the young. Premiered Glen Street Theatre 2001
