The Roundabout is a delightful comedy by one of Britain's most prolific playwrights, J.B. Priestley, beloved for such classics as Cornelius (Brits Off Broadway, 2013), An Inspector Calls and Time and the Conways. First seen in 1933, this production is one of the first revivals to be staged.
The Kettlewells are a dysfunctional family. Richard is an old Etonian whose business ventures are failing. Over a crowded weekend, his daughter Pamela--whom he hardly knows--returns from Russia a passionate Communist, his ex-wife and mistress both turn up, and his butler has a big win at the races.
