Half of a Double Bill with Krapp's Last Tape.

Tira is a girl who tries very hard to sustain the affections of five very different men, all portrayed by Derek Staples. "Tira" is a sharply focussed piece of modern theatre, both cynical and very funny. It underlies the modern casual commitment to love and sex.
