I really enjoyed this! It is great for actors looking for monologues within the play and it is really one for the heart. It also demonstrates the way views have changed on people with disabilities and what rights they have. It is an uncomprimising exploration of attitudes towards the disabled and how society is changing with their attitudes towards people with disabilities
Tom is approaching his twenty fifth birthday. He is serverly handicapped and despite intervetion from social services has lived in the care of his parents, who have devoted their lives to him But the unrelenting challenge of keeping up normal appearances while trying to care for Tom's every need reduces the family to breaking point.
My favourite character was Tom's sister Charlie along with Steven the social worker as they challenged old fashioned attitudes towards Tom. To sum it up the play is definitely painful, witty and moving.
