This immensely moving play won the London Theatre Critics Award for best play of 1980. Both Anne Bancroft and Julie Andrews have played the role of a famous concert violinist who is stricken with a disease which necessitates her retirement from the stage and which threatens her marriage as well. The play is structured as a series of interviews between the violinist and her psychiatrist in which she tries to cope with her illness and its effect on her life.
