The time, 1955; the place, a country house in England, the
characters – servants, society people, bohemians.
Lady Ethne’s birthday portrait will be unveiled tonight…but
whirlpools swirl below the society gathering.
Sir Henry Fitton, Ethne’s husband – a bully, womanizer, supposed
war hero and successful businessman – with a dark secret.
Lady Ethne, his downtrodden wife; Harry, portrait painter, desperately
in love with Ethne
Joyce Cowley, Ethne’s old friend and Henry’s mistress
Aunt Dulcie, spinster aunt, dependent but resentful of Henry’s power
George, his son, keen to marry Betty, who also has a dark secret
And Frank Lucas, supposedly an old war comrade
