Overview


Against the rising Bajan sun, the Gillard family gathers to lay their mother Grace to rest. Eli, devout follower of the Church of God of Providence and father to three, reluctantly welcomes his wayward son, Josh, back into the fold.

London, five years later. The table is set for another family reunion. Tiger Malt for the men, Juiceys for the women and lashings of Madeira cake are washed down with a familiar dose of holy water. But past shadows illuminate old passions and these fragile relationships are tested for the last time.

From the vibrant colours of Barbados to the grey skies of Leytonstone, this bittersweet play follows one family’s struggle to reconcile their faith in God with faith in one another.

"Acknowledges the power of faith while exposing the failings of its adherents...a genuinely informative play that shows true believers can be trying in every sense of the word." - Guardian

"Soans's drama about religion, persecution and reconciliation is well worth persevering with...profound and affecting." - Telegraph

"A rich family drama with engaging, well fleshed-out characters." – Younger Theatre

"This is a sharply written piece that is both sympathetic to and contemptuous of its subject – it's the perfect balance." – What’s on Stage

"Soans’s play is sensitive and lovingly written piece which no doubt will only grow and deepen over its run." – Exeunt
