"Whom can you trust in this world, whom can you ever rely on?"
1950s Mississippi - wealthy spinster Cornelia Scott is waiting for a phone call. Today is the annual election of the Confederate Daughters - surely this will be the year she is rightfully elected Regent. And to make things even more special, today is the 15th anniversary of her secretary Grace’s arrival. As a gift Cornelia has bought her 15 roses - 'a rose for every year, a year for every rose'. After all, Grace is more of a companion than a secretary. If only Grace was a little more forthcoming with her feelings. And if only the phone would ring…
Originally written as a companion piece with Suddenly Last Summer, Something Unspoken is a short, comic tale of suppressed love and desire from the one of the 20th Century’s greatest playwrights.
