Nicholas Wright's new version of the play by Luigi Pirandello, starring Juliette Binoche.
The Almeida Theatre's production is produced for radio in a collaboration with BBC Radio Drama North.

Ersilia Drei, a young woman, is hounded by the press after the death of a child entrusted to her care. She is offered refuge by a novelist, and gradually her story emerges. Ersilia is exploited by four men in turn: she is seen in a different light by each one as he comes into contact with her.
