By Alexi Kaye Campbell
Three actors play two sets of characters with identical names living 60 years apart. In the 1950s Oliver hires Sylvia to illustrate his newest children’s book and an attraction develops between Oliver and Sylvia’s deeply closeted husband Philip. In the present day, Philip and Oliver are a couple on the rocks due to Oliver’s resistance to monogamy and his emotional attachment to his best friend Sylvia. Defunkt’s Executive Director Sarah Armitage directs this Olivier-award winning play which cuts back and forth between two eras to challenge notions of love, faithfulness, and the nature of liberation.
