The Present is about the present, with its infinite, unrealised possibilities, a gift that withers and crumbles before it reaches us. It is a myriad realities, all equally probable, all equally unreal: Minna and Reg, married and childless, sharing their North London flat with their eccentric lodger, Alex; Minna married to Alex and living in the country with him and their two children; Minna in hospital after a breakdown, subject to fantasies and frightening memories; Minna and Reg in their North London flat trying to come to terms with Alex's suicide. Which of these realities is present, which past, which imagined, which lived through.
