Story

This Broadway and London hit is about the way the world changes around you just when you are trying to change it yourself. The plot centers on David and Jane, who are a happy and prosperous couple and by contrast, their neighbors, Colin and Sheila, are a bitter and struggling couple. David, an architect, is currently working on the redevelopment of an inner city slum – this propels him and his wife to take on their neighbors as their next ‘redevelopment’ project. This well-crafted and complex play written by Michael Frayn explores the contrasting natures of those who help and those who are helped; those who create and those who destroy.
