Absent Friends, Paperback Book

Absent Friends Paperback

Part of the Acting Edition S. series


Colin must be comforted in his grief over the death of his fiancEe so his friends, who never met the girl, arrange a tea party for him.

Understandably they are on edge wondering what to say, but there is more to their unease: Diane and Paul, John and Evelyn, and Marge and her husband are perpetually out of circulation with trivial illnesses are all kept together by a mixture of business and cross-marital emotional ties.

By the time Colin arrives for tea, their tenseness contrasts dramatically with his air of cheerful relaxation.

He is the only happy one among them and his happiness and insensitive analyses of their troubles causes each of them to break down.
