Adapted from renowned writer David Hare's bewitching play, MY ZINC BED is a searing examination of alcohol addiction and obsession. This three-character piece centers on Paul, a young poet and recovering alcoholic; billionaire businessman Victor who befriends and employs him; and Victors young wife Elsa, an alcoholic who has chosen to recover without the help of Pauls much-relied-upon AA meetings. The story builds in intensity as over the course of a summer, Paul and Elsa become romantically involved. The three main characters clash and challenge each others beliefs as they grapple with their own inner demons. With wit, drama, and pathos, Hare explores themes of faith, friendship, and fidelity with a deep emotional resonance that heightens the story from beginning to end.
