The Play

Colin must be comforted in is grief over the death of his fiancé. His friends, who never me the girl, arrange a tea party for him. Understandably, they are on edge wondering what to say to him. But there is a more to their unease than that. Diana, Paul, John, Evelyn and Marge are all kept together by a mixture of business and cross marital emotional ties. By the time Colin arrives for tea, their mood is tense and his cheerful analysis of their trouble causes each, in his own way, to break down.
