Ayckbourn's play centres on Joe, the father of Julia - who was a musical prodigy and died aged 19. Twelve years have passed and Joe has never stopped asking why. Did she really take her own life? Or was someone else with her on that fateful night? Strange sounds and signs have begun to haunt the shrine Joe has built to his lost daughter. He wants an answer.
