The Old Country
by Alan Bennett
December 1983
~ Directed by Betty Janes ~

Hilary and Bron await the arrival of Hilary's sister and brother-in-law in a very English setting: Bron potters about the garden and Hilary sits asleep on the veranda, Elgar's music drifts from the house. The visitors arrive, bringing an assortment of particularly English thin's, and as the conversation proceeds, it becomes apparent they are not in England. In fact Hilary fled into exile some years previously after betraying his country, but now it seems he must return.
