Synopsis:
For Alan, the memories of hospitalisation after World War II are more real than his current stay in hospital, to the distress of his family, but his flashbacks eventually explain the loss of his closest friendship. The play uses the unravelling of the mystery of a broken friendship to explore the nature of memory and its impact on behaviour.
