The first half of this play takes place on a desert island in
the late eighteenth-century where an upper-class woman and a black man in
his mid-forties are shipwrecked. Alone and adrift from any societal
pressure, they have to work out their relationship to each other. The
second half of the play takes place in a bar in London's Ladbroke Grove in
the 1950s. A black man and a white woman sit together having a drink and
discussing the painful break-up of their relationship. They are cast
together in the most public of arenas.

Review:

'More anguished than angry, with some wit and much feeling.
Phillips drives his point home...'
-- Time Out

'Phillips is trying to do something with form that reaches beyond
the 'black theatre' ghetto.' -- Sunday Times

'There is a coolness in the writing of Caryl Phillips altogether
rare in an author so angry at heart.' -- Daily Telegraph
