AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'When Davy's new brother is born, Davy tries to take on extra responsibilities. He wants everyone to be happy - his mother, his half-sister Junie, even his step-father Trev. But Davy's understanding of what constitutes happiness is flawed by his condition.

From the perspective of adulthood Davy relives the events, but his logic is still the same and the outcome cannot be changed. This powerful and moving play brings to life some of the consequences of foetal alcohol syndrome.'
