        Sitting Room, The

Sitting Room, The

Joy Sanders plays Elaine, the middle-aged woman whom we find wrapping and sifting through her mother's possessions as she prepares for the funeral. Her father is already dead. Within a few minutes, the play touches a chord with the mainly female and mature audience. Elaine was forced to put her elderly mother in a nursing home and now feels a terrible guilt. The fact she had no choice does little to assuage this guilt. - British Theatre Guide
