Sample: Drifting


Each year, members of the Rossi/Sullivan family get together for the Christmas break. This year a new life (baby James) joins the family and a much loved member, Enid, slips further into Alzheimer’s.

Despite the seriousness of the topic, it is diluted by a lively and humorous script, as each person reacts to Enid’s situation in a different way whilst trying to maintain the usual Christmas banter and jollity.

The play is a series of contrasts. A new life says ‘hello’ as an old life recedes, the past and the present merge, and pathos intertwines with comedy, showing how close the two can be.
