romantic drama

Set in the 1930s, this moving play first follows a young English poet, Flora Crewe, as she travels through India. The country is on the verge of gaining its independence and there Flora finds creative inspiration as well as love. The narrative then moves fifty years forward in time to 1980s England, where Flora’s younger sister, Eleanor (played by Rosemary Harris), tries to preserve the legacy of her sister’s career. As she comes to learn more about her older sister’s past and creative spirit, the two are drawn closer through art though they are world’s apart.
