About the Show Less...

Rodney Ackland's new play about a group of creative housemates and a beautiful guest. Read More >

A seedy flat, presided over by Vera Lyndon, a slatternly Bohemian with a heart of gold, is home to a motley crew of young people, including her three grown-up children, trying somehow to make a go of life in London. The chaos of their lives as they love, hate and threaten suicide, write novels, play the ukulele and party, is threatened by the arrival of Peter, an “almost too good-looking” young artist with a purpose of his own.

Produced in 1932, it was the first modern play directed by John Geilgud and gave Rodney Ackland one of his early successes.
