    I wish I had no love in me at all so I could better bear the things that need doing. I hate being held back and still, still I’m mourning the past.”

    The early twentieth century.

    Sophie has created a life for herself in a new country. When Jim, the younger brother she left as a boy, makes the same journey to come live with her, the siblings must renegotiate their relationship and the political tensions threatening to overwhelm their two-bedroom flat. At turns witty, tender, and thoughtful, this two-hander asks what happens when the people we love are too familiar and too strange, and how the fight for one home – family, community, or place – can complicate another.
