Classic but little-known Coward set in a retirement home for actresses. It focuses on a feud between residents Lotta Bainbridge and May Davenport, who once both loved the same man. Sheridan Morley said it had ‘moments of near-Chekhovian dignity and melancholy’ while Sybil Thorndike, who played Lotta, called it ‘cruel but awfully funny’.
