Additional Info

Central to the play is Kathleen’s relationship with her son – the baby whom she only knew “…for six short weeks” and the grown man, “…parking somewhere now, I expect. Getting out of his car, looking at the houses. Looking at this house”. You is about loss and the way it has shaped Kathleen’s life. It is also about its impact upon her family and everyone else who found themselves a part of her story.
