3 Male 3 Female

Ten years after Captain Coots has died, a successful businessman

His widow, Anna, decides to use the money that he left to build a place of refuge for the homeless

Money which she believes is ‘tainted’ and best spent on a good cause

The Coots marriage was bitter sweet and they had a son, Peter, a budding artist

However, Peter, like his father, has a hereditary illness that affects the brain

Unfortunately for Peter, the condition is far worse than his father had and faces a future life of just being alive, not knowing who he is and unable to care for himself

The time of the play is set on the completion of the refuge and tomorrow sees a celebration with dignitary’s, officials, local people and workmen that did the building for it’s opening

But on the eve of these celebrations the refuge burns down, and what is more, Peter is becoming too close to Suzie, a union that would have consequences if it is not stopped

The final twist that closes the play is with Peter, who takes matters into his own hands
