Performance dates – October 10 – 21 st
BILL CLEMENTS – about 40. A demanding role playing a brain damaged man.
FRANCIS CLEMENTS – mid 30’s – sister to Bill
MOLLY DWYER – mid 60’ – neighbour
DAN – same age as Bill – school friend & previous boyfriend of Francis
TWO SEAGULLS – these are rod operated puppets which will need ‘handlers’ – some experience of puppetry would be beneficial.
A gentle, compassionate comedy about Bill & Francis. Bill, brain-damaged by a teenage accident, has been ‘taken on’ by his sister Francis, who, unable to put him in a home, has chosen to settle with him in a beachside cottage. The difficulties of the situation and their mutual frustration is lightened by love, understanding and courage. Bill, unable to speak to those on stage, shares with the
audience, in a dry sardonic way, the real feelings and observations of a middle-aged man trapped in the bodily functions of a child.
