To add to her own and her family’s problems, Iris nurtures an intensely possessive love for her only child, Simon. Simon comes home, accompanied by a girlfriend, Deryn, and Iris’s joy quickly turns to jealousy and suspicion. Confronted with an increasingly difficult situation Simon finally announces that he and Deryn are married and expecting a baby. Iris cannot be reconciled to the news and the play closes with Iris alone, her world shattered, unable to acknowledge her own folly.
