  • Synopsis

    Louise burns a letter that is apparently a suicide note from her brother, Liam, which her mother has been obsessing over in the months since his death. Louise's sister, Nicola, discovers her in the act, and the 45-minute play unfolds as the two wait for their mothern to come home. How will she take the news that her final link to Liam has been destroyed? More than that, how will she react if she finds out that the letter was actually fabricated by Louise?
