Days of Wine and Roses was a 1962 black and white movie directed by Blake Edwards and starring Jack Lemmon in his first 'dramatic' role as a young alcoholic who drags his much-loved wife with him into the swamp of addiction - from which eventually only he escapes. Northern Irish writer McCafferty has relocated J.P. Miller's screenplay to London in the 60's, centring it on a young couple just arrived from Belfast

The play explodes the consoling myth that drink is simply a liberating tongue-loosener: McCafferty shows, with clinical accuracy, the lies, self-deceptions, desperation and violence of the confirmed alcoholic.
