A heart-wrenching drama of anguish and missed opportunities, from the author of My Night With Reg.

Don is still carrying a torch for Diana, his childhood sweetheart stolen away by Howard. Don unexpectedly drops in on Howard and Diana, having not seen them for 15 years. They now have a daughter, Hermia, who is the spit of Diana when Don first fell for her, so all his old longings bubble dangerously to the surface.

Kevin Elyot's play Forty Winks was first staged at the Royal Court Theatre, London, in 2004.

Press Quotes

Daily Telegraph

'Kevin Elyot depicts doomed yet persistent passions with an intensity that all the more riveting for being constrained and entwined with humour... it is hard to take your eyes off his new play'
