In_ The Circle, _what goes around comes around . . . just in time for cocktail hour. A forerunner to The Constant Wife—_which was a hit with critics and audiences in 2002—The Circle _set the standard for W. Somerset Maugham’s winning brand of social satire. _The Circle _begins thirty years after the fresh-faced and vivacious Lady Kitty left her politician husband for a scandalous life with his best friend. Still vivacious (but not quite as fresh-faced), the exiled lovers flounce back into town just as history is preparing to repeat itself by wreaking havoc on the marriage of Kitty’s grown son, Arnold. Will practicality beat out passion this time around? Will Arnold’s straying spouse be influenced by her elders’ impetuous example? And will anyone be able to tolerate another game of bridge with the insufferable Lord Porteous?
