  • Overview
    Spencer was a twentieth century painter, whose work attempted to combine the sexual with the divine in contemporary English settings. His paintings frequently showed biblical scenes taking place in ordinary English villages, particularly Cookham, and often depicted, or used figures inspired by, his friends, relatives and lovers.

    Spencer married two different women, each of whom was a gifted painter in her own right. He left his first wife Hilda, a conventional woman who loved him, in order to marry Patricia, a defiantly unconventional lesbian who was incapable of loving him. Much of the play revolves around his passionate attachment to both women.
