“This could have become far-fetched but Hayes's acidic humor and natural, instinctively paced dialogue stop the play spilling into melodrama. Hayes has a rare talent for creating frighteningly powerful characters who remain spine-tinglingly tangible, despite their extraordinary actions.” –Time Out
Keith just wants to say he’s sorry. A lifetime of drug and alcohol abuse has given him a lot to apologize for – particularly to the two people who raised him from a child. But as the memories of violence, betrayal, lies and recriminations are raked to the surface, it becomes clear that past actions can have shocking repercussions in the present. Forgiving is easy, forgetting is a different story.
