Elma is a singer in a sleazy 1930s Berlin night-club. She was the victim of an appalling assault during the First World War and, as a result, lost her memory

A man appears and tells her that she is, in fact, the wife of an Italian aristocrat and a new life awaits her abroad

But when she goes to Italy to pursue this dream, she finds unexpected problems and disappointments

Pirandello uses this story to explore the mysteries of identity and memory, themes that pre - occupied him thoughout his life

' ... a fresh new version by Hugh Whitemore ... superb revival of so rich and troubling a drama' ~ Daily Telegraph
