Production Description: The setting is post WW2 in grimy, poverty-stricken England. Lady Billows lives with her companion, Florence, in a housing project efficiency apartment with just a few treasured relics from her late-Victorian youth. Albert’s green grocer functions as both apartment and place of business. In a desperate attempt to re-capture the glory of a bygone era, Billows pursues her insane quest.
