Sarah and Phil had recently separated when their son, Joe, was killed while playing football alone in a playground. Now Phil visits the same playground every day and sits on a bench, waiting for Joe to appear so he can talk to him. On this occasion Sarah joins Phil, concerned that he is struggling to cope with his grief. Through the initial pain and recriminations they begin to find ways to forgive each other, and discover comfort in their shared memories of Joe. A very poignant short play, ideal for festivals, from the author of Flash, Bam, Alakazam.
First performed at Sedgefield Drama Festival in 2009.
