Publisher's Summary

The dignified mother of a ruthless African dictator travels to England to seek treatment for her failed eyes from a renowned ophthalmologist. At first glance, it looks like one woman helping another, but each woman brings to the other her true agenda, triggering a profound moral dilemma and a chain reaction of events with great personal and political aftershocks.


Audible Editor Reviews

American playwright Lee Blessing’s Going to St. Ives is a complex psychological interplay between two women of disparate backgrounds. The mother of an African dictator journeys to England for a surgery on her eyes. Her English doctor has an agenda beyond providing care. Both women harbor their own secrets. Can they live with the consequences of their actions? L. Scott Caldwell - best known as Rose on the television show Lost - plays May N'Kame in a regal and commanding fashion, while Caroline Goodall’s Dr. Cora Gage is delightfully frustrating, delivering a performance that is equal parts empathy and condescension.
