Synopsis

Mary has raised her daughters in this house. Watched them play and fight and grow up in this house. Today it is the house where she will get married. The wedding celebrations have brought the fractured family together for the first time in years: There is Phoebe and her husband Michael, children in tow. he young and sensitive Rosie, with her new partner. Irene, Mary's ex-mother-in-law. And Emma. There, despite all that has gone before. Set over the course of an English summer's day and punctuated with memories from the past forty years of love and betrayal, hope and joy, heartbreak and grief, this is the story of a family. Told by a chorus of characters, it is an exploration of the intimacies and transgressions that bring us to where we are, the changes that are brought about by time, and what, despite everything, stays the same.
