"Elizabeth, forty-something, childless, recently separated, just wants to be alone. She's moved into her new house, a converted Victorian mansion, alive with history, character, woodworm and dry rot. But worse than that, she's besieged by invaders of the human kind." "Her best friend, her sister, their mother, the builder and a photographer are all determined to make their mark. And a former inhabitant of the house, disturbed from her resting-place by Elizabeth's arrival, stirs long-forgotten memories." "A play about love, death, identity and evolution, Abandonment is a complex mixture of social comedy and family drama, reminding us that the past is not as far away as we think. Abandonment premiered at the Traverse Theatre during the 2000 Edinburgh Festival."--BOOK JACKET.
