A brand new family every time. Everyone takes a role. Someone is Mummy, someone is gruff old Dad. Someone is the Bad Girl and someone is the Wayward Boy, the Seafaring Uncle, the Spinster Aunt, the Country Cousin, the Little Brother. Grandma and Grandpa send gifts for weddings and birthdays. Wonderful times, loves and laughs, heartbreak, tears and joy. Moments of passion clean out of nowhere, snatched without even knowing what made you do it under the footlights, behind a door, in the corridor with your arms full of mending. And, at the end of the production, a painless loving divorce. The constellation dissolves to reform, renew, begin again. It goes on forever and nothing else is real.
