One-act play for 3 women.
Following a motorcycle accident in which her boyfriend was killed, Cecily is brain-damaged. Her lone parent, Sheila, is struggling to cope whilst her aunt, Ellen, tries to distance herself from the situation. Ellen, elegant and married, comes to visit and gradually intense and complicated family relationships are revealed when Sheila confronts Ellen with her responsibilities. The problems of carers are sharply highlighted.
‘I love her, I love her, but I don’t know wht to do with her.’
We are shown flashbacks of Cecily before the accident, her lively personality contrasting cruelly with the wheelchair-bound reality. Fiery, forthright and honest, this moving play has three excellent roles for women.
