The Sweet-Shop Owner is set during a single June day in the life of an outwardly unremarkable man whose inner world proves to be exceptionally resonant. As he tends to his customers, Willy Chapman, the sweet-shop owner, confronts the spectre's of his beautiful and distant wife and his clever, angry daughter; the history through which he has passed; and the great, unrequited passion that has tormented him for 40 years.
