The curtain rises on a gorgeous English country home in 1919 in the midst of a game of charades played by the young Conway family at a birthday party with their friends. Flash forward to 1937 in the same house: the grown children have gathered to settle family accounts in a world not so bright as it was. For this family, time is a kind of dream: their precious moments together are fleeting and brief, but their destinies are eternal. Time and the Conways, by the author of An Inspector Calls, is just the kind of theatrical gem Globe audiences love to rediscover, with the kind of sumptuous period scenery, costumes, and artistry for which The Old Globe is renowned.
In his poignant drama of the Conways and their eventful lives in Britain between the wars-a period that Globe audiences who love "Downton Abbey" will recognize-Priestley examines the driving forces of human existence: love, ambition, and most of all, time. He conjures a striking portrait of a family in which past, present, and future are inextricably intertwined.
