A deeply moving and at times confronting play from WA’s most acclaimed writer.
A year after their 19 year old son Jack was killed in an early morning car crash his parents are still struggling with what happened. Father Adam has withdrawn to their beach house to avoid wife Mary’s silent suffering. One day he meets a young woman he once employed who knows about Jack and the story of Jacks final hours which she need to share with Adam.
This play explores the depths of grief and how those who have left us can reveal themselves through those who loved them. A deeply moving and emotionally demanding play.
