The amateur premier of the play in England.

It is a very topical play although written at the beginning of the 1920s. The press pursue a young woman after a child's death whilst in her care. She is offered refuge by a middle-aged novelist. It is a disturbing and complex play dealing with the complexities of guilt.

As the play unfolds differing stories emerge as to the reality of the child's death. It is like peeling an onion to reach the truth that in the end reaches a terrible climax.

Place: Rome. Time: Summer of 1922. Setting: The rented study of Ludovico Nota.
