THE STORY 
Billy controls his wife and two adult daughters to the extent that they can't leave the room without asking permission. He runs his family as a personal fiefdom, and the women are there to service him and his madness. He is violent, disturbed and controlling; however, he is also tragic, sad, a lost soul. After many years of abuse, his family takes matters into their own hands. The play shows us a distorted world of madness, control and despair through the eyes of Billy and those of his family, struggling to understand reality outside their stifling tomb.

THE REVIEWS 
"…brilliantly broaches a difficult subject…What is truly arresting and brilliantly intelligent about Shelagh Stephenson's award-winning [play] is how it handles the subject of brutal violence so quietly…all her characters are fleshed out with great truthfulness. Outstanding."
—Telegraph (London)

"A powerful and chilling new drama…an intelligently handled and thought-provoking play."
—Richmond and Twickenham Times
