Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Another entry in the British TV anthology The Ruth Rendell Mysteries, May and June could just as easily have been retitled "A Tale of Two Sisters." Phoebe Nicholls and Christine Kavanagh were cast as siblings May Thrace and June Symonds. Having long been jealous of June's happy marriage and posh lifestyle, May became convinced that she, rather than June, deserved so idyllic an existence. Eventually obsessing on the matter, May decided with tragic finality that she would "become" June, and nothing would stand in her way to accomplish this goal. May and June was offered in two hour-long installments by Britain's ITV service in 1997.
