Waters of the Moon

Written by N C Hunter
Directed for Actonians by Ann Aplin


The dull routine of a modest shabby private hotel in the West Country is broken by the arrival of unexpected and exciting guests whose car breaks down nearby. Helen Lancaster, a vivacious and attractive woman, together with her husband and l8 year old daughter are well and truly snowbound. In this setting, the effect of the sophisticated newcomers on the household is both comic and tragic, as certain relationships develop and inevitable strains begin to show.
