A comedy by Alfred Shaughnessy.
The time is warm September: the place, a villa on the coast near Cannes.
(A BBC telerecording of the broadcast on June 12)
The Countess is fortunate enough to live in one of those villas along the coast, west of Cannes, with a balcony overlooking the Mediterranean. Angela Dale-Adams, who has recently divorced her husband, comes to stay with the Countess and brings her son Simon: she has arranged for the tutor to follow them from England. It is hardly her fault that he turns out to be youngish, attractive, and sympathetic. The play concerns the effect these three visitors have on each other and on the Countess, on the ageing painter Mouranoff, who is living quietly in retirement with her, and her romantic maid Nicole.
