What happens when a long – held family secret is secret no longer? Martha is a successful writer and university professor. The action of the play takes place in a single day, when her favourite cousin, Peter, arrives at her university with his family, to receive an award for his ground-breaking medical research. Thirty years ago, when Martha was ten years old an event happened which she believes she has successfully suppressed. However, memory cannot so easily be controlled. And when it emerges, with charges and counter-charges, who can we believe? Which story defines the ‘truth’, and who is to judge?
As for consequences, is ‘keeping it in the family’ ever really justified?
