Play Details

Overview

Gabriel Conroy has come to his aunt’s annual Christmas party out of family obligation and duty.

He thinks they are far beneath him in the understanding of life and philosophy. He is solicitous toward his lovely wife, Gretta, and tolerant of other party guests.

Little does he know that, on that night, the night on which snow begins to fall over Dublin, he will glimpse Gretta’s secret passion, a long-dead suitor who died for the love of her.

“Moments of their secret life together burst like stars upon his memory.”

This adaptation is also included in the three-play volume ” An Evening With Joyce’s Women”
