By Simon Mendez Da Costa. Directed by Howard James.
It is the day of the funeral of Louis, and his two middle-aged sons are back in the family home with their wives, all of them suppressing their animosity.
Flashing back to the same suburban bedroom 50 years’ earlier, the play reveals the roots of their mutual dislike.
Louis was the secret biological father of both boys who were born to different mothers, and has passed on his guilt by favouring one son over the other. Gradually the layers are stripped away as they compete to get their hands on the family heirlooms.
