Iris Scott switches back on the tape recorder.  "Aren't you curious?  Aren't you dying to know.  My terrible secret.  I told you I'd done a terrible thing to David.  No, this is wrong...you're a friend...I was married when I met David," says Rosemary's voice from the tape.  "And the worst thing is not to be loved," sobs Rosemary.  Iris sits listening to the tape, close to tears.  Glenda Brownlow comes back into the room and see's her.  "Are you alright?" she asks Iris.  "Get out!" sobs Iris.
