Nicholas Martin to Direct Westport Country Playhouse's The Circle in 2011
This comedy of manners is about Lord Champion-Cheney, who, many years ago, was abandoned by his wife, a legendary beauty. Now his son Arnold, a politician and rising star, is having marital problems of his own. Is history destined to repeat itself?
