Summary
Passions flare and tempers rise when three couples cross paths at a country house one weekend. It all begins with the arrival of Reg and his wife, Sarah. They've come to give Reg's younger sister, Annie, a few days' break from caring for their bedridden mother. However, Annie confides that she's seeing someone, not Tom, the single young vet who's pursuing her, but her brother-in-law, Norman. Appalled, Sarah informs Norman's wife, Ruth, and all hell breaks loose. Ayckbourn's trilogy tells the same weekend story from three different vantage points in the house and garden, and can be watched in any order
