Description

A classic tale of how a perfectly knitted life can unravel in the space of days. Alexandra Ludd is an actress, playing Nora in Ibsen's A Doll's House. In the eyes of the world she has everything a woman could want: husband, home, child, income; good looks, good friends, the plaudits of the crowd and the affection of neighbours. But Alexandra inspires envy as well as love: she was unwise to forget it: she was complacent, perhaps a little vain - and all fate has to do to bring her down is to snip a single strand... Worst Fears is the story of how bereavement can turn love hollow and truth destroy a past. It is a headlong, headstrong tale of anger and forgiveness, of worst fears realised but, in the end, best wishes granted.
