Dan used to be a successful drugs sales rep for a pharmaceutical company but after a stroke he finds all kinds of communication difficult and fatiguing. He employs Alice, a private speech and language therapist, to ‘make him better’. Recently divorced Alice has moved home and business to a small rented flat where at night the sea gulls gather on her skylight. A play about sound, language and meaning.
