What to expect

Esme Allen is a middle-aged West End actor and is in control of her life: she’s financially secure and successful. However, Amy, her grown-up daughter is pregnant by Dominic, an ambitious media-man who believes that theatre is dead. Esme and Dominic, unsurpisingly, loathe each other. But this leaves Amy – whose ‘view’ is that love conquers all – right in the middle of things. Then Dominic’s star begins to rise, just as Esme starts to lose everything: the comforts of home, money. Even her daughter, Amy... Among the star cast in this recording are Samantha Bond and Dame Judi Dench, who won a Tony Award for her Broadway performance in Amy’s View.
