Many years ago, Lord Champion-Cheney was abandoned by his wife, Lady Catherine, who ran off to Italy with her lover. Bringing matters full circle, his stuffy son Arnold is now involved in a love triangle of his own as his bored wife is smitten with a handsome house guest. The Circle explores how history often is destined to repeat itself. The play is the second production in the Playhouse’s 80th birthday year, is considered Maugham’s wittiest play, a seamless blend of romance and repartee.
