WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
The National Theatre presents Strange Interlude, a touching play set in post-war America. Shattered when the love of her life is killed in the war and haunted by their unconsummated passion, Nina escapes her jealous Ivy League father and embarks on a series of tawdry sexual escapades until, cajoled by her appalled, long-suffering suitor Charles, she marries the amiable young Sam. But while pregnant, Nina learns a horrifying secret that precipitates a desperate, life-changing decision and propels her fatally into the arms of another. Following a family from the aftermath of World War One until the late 1940s, Eugene O'Neill's audacious epic is one of the great masterpieces of American theatre.
