Overview

What happens when a comfortable, middle-class, middle-aged marriage suddenly stalls? When shared values and responsibilities no longer coalesce? When the opportunity arises for one life to be renewed, but at the expense of another's happiness and security? And how does this impact on the rest of the family?

A drama that challenges our notion of honour, our sense of decency and our belief that love will prevail, Honour received its British premiere at the National Theatre in a production directed by Roger Mitchell with Eileen Atkins and Corin Redgrave leading the cast.

Editorial Reviews

Variety
HONOUR makes for surprisingly interesting viewing. Tight, crackling dialogue (usually played out in punchy verbal duels) captures characters unable to deal with emotions...Murray-Smith effectively places her characters in situations that strip away pretense.
Time Out Magazine
...the play's virtues are strong: a distinctive theatrical voice, passionate concerns...HONOUR might just capture a few honors of its own.
