AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'As parents, though we might move heaven and earth in order to spare our children the slightest sorrow, it can be argued that it is as much our role to allow them to learn how to cry as it is to protect them from the very troubles that provoke their tears. The impossible balancing act of parenthood. In the midst of the intimate darkness of the marital bed, Libby and Oscar play out the odyssey that is the raising of Millie, through a series of deft scenes spanning a quarter of a century, with all the angst, humour, pettiness and sheer profundity that is marriage and the raising of a child.'
