Just a Song at Twilight is a play for two men and four women. Seated in
wheelchairs in their ""Home"" the three old ladies eke out their fading
lives in a mixture of shadowy realities, occasional sharp perceptions,
and dreams of the past, humoured by the kind, efficient Nurse. At one
moment their secret feelings are symbolized in a macabre song and dance.
But Nurse also has dreams-concerned with the visiting Vicar. When he
dies suddenly her
dreams are transferred to his successor. All is unsubstantial-and when
the lights flash up at the end of the play no-one and nothing is left on
the empty stage.
