When a young poet visits his fiancée bringing along a mysterious friend, her introverted sister falls head over heels in love only to be coldly rejected. Years later they meet again…

Barrie Kosky’s staging features an opulent stage design that underscores the poetry of the characters and their tragedy with the vastness of natural space as a metaphor.
