Description "The play begins in the present, with the meeting of Emma and Jerry, whose adulterous affair of seven years ended two years earlier. Thereafter, in a series of contiguous scenes, the play moves backward in time, from the end of the Emma-Jerry affair to its beginning, throwing into relief the little lies and oblique remarks which, in this timereverse, reveal more than direct statements, or overt actions, ever could."
