A play reflecting today’s world, where so many young adults find themselves living with parents. In adult bodies but with childhood resentments simmering.
The four adults are a make born deaf to parents who took the option not to learn to sign or to teach him. His brother who has a broken relationship and is contending with psycophernia and a stammer. His sister who also feels lost in the world, single. His girlfriend born to deaf parents, who is now losing hearing. The girlfriend talks about in deaf community how, no one understands what like to lose hearing as they have never had hearing.
The parents also featuring adding to colour of family life and provoking thoughts. Fantastic complex characters, not necessarily fully likeable. Play made time pass quickly.
