"The imaginative insight and author can offer an audience in the theatre is poignantly demonstrated by Robert Hewett in this study of Bill and his sister Frances. Bill, brain-damaged by teenage accident, has been "inherited" by Frances, who has chosen to settle with him in a beachside cottage because she cannot bear the gilt of leaving him in a home. Their mutual frustration is lightened by love, understanding and carried; while Bill, unable to speak to those on stage, shares with the audience in the sides of dry, sardonic wit, the real feelings and observations of a middle-aged man trapped in the bodily functions of a baby." -- From the rear panel blurb.
