The Garrick YearUnknown - 1964
Once a model and now a mother of two small children, Emma has little life of her own.When her husband David is invited to star in two plays in Hereford and Emma is obliged to leave her beloved London and join him, the resentment begins to surface.Emma remains unmoved by the local scenic beauty, becomes mildly irritated by the egocentric actors she meets and is frequently furious with the conceit of her arrogant but talented husband. So what sparks off her liaison with director Wyndham Farrar? Attraction? Loneliness? The desire for romance? Or sheer, unadulterated revenge?And are any of these forces powerful enough to sustain such an affair?'There are many writers with a good eye and almost as many with a good ear- very few are as well endowed with both as she is' - Sunday Telegraph
