About this show

The Breath of Life is a tale of two seasoned women, whose lives are interwoven through their relationship with a pivotal, yet offstage, male character, Martin. Madeleine Palmer, played by Jane Alexander, is a retired curator, living alone on the Isle of Wight. One day to her door comes Frances Beale, played by Stockard Channing, a woman she has met only once, who is now enjoying sudden success, later in life, as a popular novelist. Over the course of one day and one night, the two women reflect on their lives and their relationship with Martin, their joint obsession.
