Something in their childhood stopped Beane and his older sister Joan from being really alive. Joan is married, with a career, but she is hard and guarded even with those she loves. Beane, on the other hand, is not even sure he’s visible.
Then something strange and terrifying happens . . . and Beane begins to live. His awakening first mystifies Joan, then transforms her marriage and her life.
But is it real or just hallucination? Does it matter? This intensely sexy and funny play may answer these questions, along with an even bigger one: Can sex and a turkey sandwich make up a whole new life?
"One of the best new plays of the year. Richly comic and deeply touching. Outstanding. A smashing, compassionate new play." - Daily Telegraph (London)
