A remarkably vivid picture of one merciless family and three desperate lives.
A blackly comic play about a grown-up brother and sister who exact revenge on their violent father. Locking him in the coalshed as retribution for years of sniping, bullying and pain, they are both aching to use their fists on him for once. But he's not defeated. Yet... First staged at the Traverse Theatre, Edinburgh in 1999.
