In this classic social drama from the '50s, troubled working-class teenager Jo finds herself pregnant by Jimmy, a sailor... partially for love, partially to escape Helen, her crude and neglectful mother, who has taken up with Peter, a younger, well-to-do lout. Unable to care for the child she's not sure she wants, Jo sets up household with a closeted young gay man, Geoffrey. Their delicate balance is upset by Helen's return after the failure of her new marriage.
With especially rich roles for women, the Four Humours production stars company members GISELLE CHATELAIN and KATHRYN TALBOT. Live music is provided by the jazz band RABBIT. The director is MICHAEL MARTIN.
