It is about an older couple of about 70 who run a farm in North Wiltshire and the wife has dementia and is deteriorating

The uncast part of the son has a poor relationship with his parents and would like them out. He is also getting divorced from his wife and has 2 kids. During the play he tries to chat up the young woman. who comes to help out in the house and live there.
The Telegraph description of the role – nerdy, insensitive son whose own unhappiness becomes ever clearer as the play progresses. It is typical of this work’s generosity of spirit that a character who initially seems merely crass and grasping finally earns our sympathy too.

The play was put on at the Bush theatre in 2014 and received excellent reviews
