Downton Abbey’s Elizabeth McGovern stars as the matriarch in this play about an English family of considerable wealth, and how their fate changes over time. Act 1 opens with a happy family full of optimism, who are celebrating the birthday of one of the daughters in 1919; act 2 finds the family 18 years later on that very same night, suffering from their considerable failings and defeats. The play, by British author J. B. Priestley, reflects deeply on how the choices we make, chance and destiny shape our future.
