In a rambling apartment, a middle-aged couple, Yvonne and Georges, live with their 22-year old son Michael. When Michael declares his love for a girl, his devoted mother burns with jealousy while his father is shocked to discover that his son's lover is someone he knows only too well. The original production scandalised Paris and this steamy hot-house of a play still seems shocking today. Jeremy Sam's darkly witty and razor sharp translation was first seen at the National Theatre in 1994 it proved a massive hit and was revived in 2010 by the prestigious Donmar Theatre
