Absent Friends

Producer Harold Pinter Theatre Director Jeremy Herrin

Set in the 70s and performed in real time, Absent Friends is a classic comedy of jealousy, disloyalty and social tensions running high.

Kara plays the young, attractive Evelyn, who is having an affair with the husband of emotionally-fraught hostess, Diana. Evelyn’s unemotional demeanor and lack of shame at her own behavior causes friction, pushing her to the fringes of the group.

Kara Tointon .. impresses with her biting world-weariness as gum-chewing Evelyn.
