The Stumbling Block by John Gwilym Jones translated from the Welsh by EMYR HUMPHREYS with Donald Houston
Dora is entertaining Eifion, an old college friend, over on a visit from America. She begins to explain why her husband died when Huw, her son, enters. It is obvious that Huw wants to make a telephone call but will not do so in front of his mother.
