Ashes to Ashes


Set in the living room of a pleasant house outside London. Devlin questions Rebecca relentlessly about an abusive ex-lover. Rebecca mixes her own experiences of violence with those of history, and in the last scene of the play, she loses herself in the experience of a woman who is forced to give up her baby at a train station before being transported to a concentration camp.
