(spoiler) I have rarely agreed with Michael Coveney, but his review is spot on. The severely disabled son might be the extreme, but the old grandmother with the increasing ailments and parent-child-relationship that are relentlessly tested to breaking point are experienced often for years. This "not having a choice" damages all members of a family for good. I would love a sequel to this play, set six months later about the family members reposition their lives. With 1h 50min an additional act plus interval the play would be too long, so a sequal should exploite the lasting consequences.
