Roman Fever

sponsored by
NZ Première

In the warm glow of an Italian afternoon in 1930, two wealthy American widows sit on the terrace of a restaurant overlooking the ancient wonders of Rome. They reminisce about their past friendship and remember a previous visit to the city when they were both young and in love. Now their hopes rest with the prospects of their unmarried daughters, who are both currently socialising elsewhere in the city. As the sun sets on the Coliseum, bitter jealousies come to light and age-old secrets are revealed.

Written by Hugh Leonard from a short story by Edith Wharton.
