A penetrating play about belonging, family and the limitations of communication. Winner of Best New Play, at the Off-West End Theatre Awards.

Billy's family, like every other, is a club, with its own private language, jokes and rules. You can be as rude as you like, as possessive as you like, as critical as you like. Arguments are an expression of love, and after all, you love each other more than anyone in the world. Don't you?

But Billy, who is deaf, is the only one who actually listens. When he meets Sylvia, he decides he finally wants to be heard.

'At once funny and piercingly painful... Raine writes with a marvellous mixture of wit and empathy... as moving as anything I have seen in the theatre this year' Telegraph

'fiercely intelligent, caustically funny and emotionally wrenching' Independent

'razor-sharp as well as utterly credible' Evening Standard
