National Theatre, London. Shelagh Stephenson's new play at the Cottesloe, however, seeks to reconcile the two by providing us with a retrospective portrait of an amateur map-collector who is close to death. The result is a humane, compassionate play that makes up in psychological perception what it lacks in external excitement. But Jack, a former book-keeper with a passion for maps, is more concerned with his own sense of failure and with acknowledging the secret guilt that has corroded his life. The Ibsenite revelation, when it finally comes, is not shocking enough to explain Jack's pervasive gloom.

Original Mappa Mundi. Colour Enhanced The Hereford Mappa Mundi is drawn on the flesh side of the skin, which explains why its undulations tend to balloon outwards

Original Mappa Mundi. In medieval books of beasts (bestiaries), the unicorn is often described as a small but fierce creature that can fight elephants. Despite this ferocity, though, bestiaries tell how the unicorn could be overcome by an innocent maiden, who could calm his wildness so that he laid his head in her lap and became harmless. The Hereford Mappa Mundi is drawn on the flesh side of the skin, which explains why its undulations tend to balloon outwards. Here the undulations caused by this innate tension are clearly visible.

As the family gathers for the forthcoming festivities, Jack attempts to reconcile himself with the unexpected decisions of those in whom he has always trusted, as well as starting to question his own, not unblemished past.
