Additional Info

Webs of personal, political, sexual, social and artistic deception unfold in the indigo nights and bright days of the Greek islands in this two part play by the author of Bent which starred Vanessa Redgrave in London and Judith Ivey in New York. In A Table for a King, which can also be produced as a one act, a writer helps blackmail an unpleasant and uncompromising woman who refuses to relinquish her table on the terrace of a Corfu hotel for the King of Greece. Part Two, Keeps Rainin' All the Time, moves to Santorini where a disparate group of expatriates, including a famous author, face nuclear rain, terrorism and the impending eruption of the volcano. The same cast may appear in both parts.
