EPITAPH FOR GEORGE DILLON

Synopsis: 

 

A domestic and political drama set in a lower middle class household in post-war South London.

 

The Elliots live a conventional, suburban life until 'Kate Elliot' brings home the charismatic 'George Dillon', a surrogate for her son killed in the war. George is an aspiring actor and penniless playwright, recently freed from the constraints of employment as a clerk, and sustained by Kate's kindness and generosity. But when she moves him into the household alongside her young daughter Josie and her divorced sister Ruth, the results are more complicated than expected.

 

BHTC NOTES: Club member Sheila Wells, remembers that this production was highly acclaimed when it was performed.
