A childs life is snuffed out by a joy-rider. Four years on, the parents and the young lad meet. In this award winning drama, writer Julian Armitstead explores the process of restorative or reparative justice, by which victim and offender are brought face to face, in a common endeavour to repair the harm caused by crime. Combining powerful naturalism with a strongly expressive thread, the drama unpicks the web of shared emotional devastation wrought on parents and killer alike. The strength of Armitsteads writing lies in his compassionate objectivity: he draws his characters and the dilemmas they face with real clarity, showing their all too human weaknesses, but also the strength of their desire to find a way forward with their lives.
