The setting is a stark, white room occupied by two characters, simply called Man and Woman. What exactly is their relationship? Since he wears a white coat and she sports neutral black, they might be analyst and patient. Gradually, however, the woman is forced to confront her past actions. Above all, she has to acknowledge that, after her partner abandoned her to marry another woman, she murdered their two children. At which point the penny suddenly drops: what we are watching is an extrapolation of the Medea-Jason myth played out in a Dante-esque purgatory.

Dorfman has plenty more tricks up his sleeve, and goes on to explore big issues. Are some sins too terrible to forgive? Is mankind locked into an endless cycle of crime and punishment? That, however, strikes me as pointlessly self-denying. Adjoa Andoh, switching between the roles of accuser and victim, runs the emotional gamut, and displays a breast-beating ferocity.
