The Nightingale and not the Lark

As a cleaning lady tends to a married couple in an attic Romeo and Juliet is on in the theatre below. But is the couple the lady is keeping company real of a figment of her imagination?

‘…it is in keeping with all Garry’s direction where she displays her usual wealth of imagination and sensitivity, while all the time she has an eye for detail, and an almost uncanny ability for interpreting even the smallest nuances. Hence the splendour of this play’- Galway Advertiser
