Two writers, a generation apart in age, meet in the older man's study to read over a two-character play which the younger man has written

The play deals with men disturbingly like themselves, and as they read the lines suitable to each it becomes apparent that reality and fantasy have begun to mingle painfully

The younger man is struggling to understand, yet also to break free and to speak in his own voice; the older man tries desperately to defend the memory of better times, and to overcome the erosions of age

Their relationship is one of love-hate, burdened by the debts owed to each other, yet sustained by an affection which neither can deny. In the end there is stalemate, and the knowledge that death alone can sever the ties which bind them

Imaginative and filled with subtle dramatic overtones, this intriguing play explores the symbiotic relationship between two writers - one young, one old - and their struggle to establish their separate identities
