Helpmann Award-winner Dean Bryant returns to MTC to direct David Hare’s contemporary classic, featuring a brilliant cast led by Colin Friels (Red) and Anna Samson (Birdland).

A few years ago, Kyra broke off her relationship with a wealthy married man, and settled for a tougher life as a teacher in a disadvantaged school. But is it idealism that drives her, or her need for penance? When her former lover Tom tracks her down to her cold London flat to rekindle their relationship, she must decide if she could ever again be the person she once was.

Recent revivals of David Hare’s modern classic continue to wow audiences around the world. Helpmann Award-winner Dean Bryant (I’ll Eat You Last) returns to MTC to direct a brilliant cast led by Colin Friels (Red) and Anna Samson (Birdland).
