Some actors carry their parts home. So the ‘real’ person can occasionally become very blurred.
This is the story of a couple, the male party of whom, Larry, is loosely pathologised by his wife, Elsie, as bipolar, while she describes the man who rules the circumstances, bad, blissful or absolutely hellish, through which she has to live, if she is to remain married to him.
Larry’s main problem lies with identity. For Larry appears to be primarily an actor, secondarily a person; and so the story of his life seems to be the story of his acting parts – until the end, that is.
