Anne-Marie Duff plays Nina in Eugene O'Neill's audacious epic, Strange Interlude – one of the great masterpieces of American theatre – at the National Theatre this summer.
Shattered when the love of her life is killed in the war and haunted by their unconsummated passion, Nina escapes her jealous Ivy League father and embarks on a series of tawdry sexual escapades until, cajoled by her appalled, long-suffering suitor Charles, she marries the amiable young Sam.
But while pregnant, Nina learns a horrifying secret that precipitates a desperate, life-changing decision and propels her fatally into the arms of another.
