Drawing on a combination of the dramatic tradition of both Tennessee Williams and Harold Pinter, Cynthia's Birthday confronts the audience with a challenging question: are second chances possible in relationships and, indeed, in life? Taking place over the course of one night, the play depicts a divorced couple who meet five years after their marriage has ended, on the occasion of their daughter's birthday. Gradually, their conversation becomes more and more penetrating and insightful, culminating in an unforgettable moment of truth. Imbued with a sly undertone of comedy, the play is a fascinatingly rich portrait of a family's emotional turmoil, and its potential redemption.
