On an Indian summer day three sisters, Kate, Helen and Ann, meet at the house of their mother Mary to await the death of their father.
During the afternoon the girls talk, sometimes bickering, to each other and to their mother, gradually revealing complexities of their lives.
Ann lives in a squat in Bristol and is heavily pregnant with a baby of a rock musician; she is flippant, carefree and refuses to recognise her situation as a problem: Kate seeks endlessly to find herself and an end to uncertainty via I Ching Zen, yoga etc: Helen, childless and with a failed marriage behind her, tries to solve the problems of others through Marxism and social work.
Their mother has the ability and clear sight to keep her worries in perspective.
Throughout, Fox, the observer's comments give depth and tome to the atmosphere.
This is a play which requires and more than repays a high degree of concentration from all involved in viewing, reading and performing it.
