Siblings Sam and Niamh are back living in their family home. Lately, they’ve been falling into the same old patterns, which is either comforting or depressing – they’re not sure which. Everything changes when their older brother Jack returns after disappearing half a lifetime ago. With all that has happened, why has he chosen to come back now? And what does it mean for their family? This live theatre performance uses an intimate, intricate textual score to explore togetherness, estrangement and what we owe to one another.
