The Ring of Truth
BY WYNYARD BROWNE
3 September 2009 — 3 October 2009
It is New Year's Eve. Tom Gore and his wife Emma have much to celebrate, especially as a promotion to a directorship seems to be in the bag.
But then a ring is lost. An engagement ring.
Emma is distraught while Tom insists on remaining rational, maintaining that, ultimately, it is only a symbol. Yet their world is suddenly plunged into a chaos of over-amorous lodgers, hysterical nannies and suspicious policemen. The loss of a ring cannot surely threaten a marriage, a child, an extended family, promotion, careers, friends, colleagues, workers, and indeed a whole village - can it?
Both funny and thrilling, this is another Orange Tree re-discovery to be relished.
