A painfully comic excavation of a family history that asks if there is an authorised version of the past - or just the one we can live with. Premiered at the Traverse Theatre in October 2012.

Kate Bane returns home to her parents for a winter weekend to introduce her new boyfriend. As the snow falls, Kate finds herself searching with increasing desperation for the truth about her family's past. Are her memories fact, or are they continually shifting acts of imagination?

Unable to pin down the truth, can she write a version of the family mythology that will ensure her own happiness?

'Fascinating... an Escher-like playfulness in its examination of the nature of creation' The Stage

'An amusing piece, well-crafted' The List
