Conjugal Rites
  • Play
  • Written by British/ New Zealand writer Roger Hall, the play was adapted for TV in 1993.

    "Barry, a dentist, and his wife Gen are in bed when the play begins. They are about to celebrate their 21st wedding anniversary. The scene- their bedroom- remains the same throughout the play, as we see the couple discussing their marriage, their grown-up children and their work. It is clear that a major shift has occurred in the power balance between the two of them, since Gen has studied for a law degree in later life, and has recently become a practising solicitor. Towards the end of the play there are revelations about infidelities on both their parts- Barry with a patient, and Gen with one of her fellow solicitors."
