The End of the Affair

The End of the Affair
Written by Graham Greene, adapted for the stage by Rupert Goold and Caroline Butler
Directed by Ahmmad Makaddar
29 September – 4 October 2008

Emma Stewart

Henry Miles, a civil servant, suspects that his wife Sarah is having an affair, and asks his writer friend, Maurice Bendrix, to contact a private investigator on his behalf. Maurice has a secret, however; he was once Sarah’s lover, and is equally keen to find out whether she was unfaithful to him too. An economical and intense adaptation.
