Although very attractive and full of potential Catherine hides from the world and clings onto Charles, an un-threatening (gay) male and generous friend. 

Catherine is full of conflict, controversy and contradictions and was a fantastic character to explore. How does she cope with the challenge of the funeral, of having a difficult friend and will she take up opportunities that come her way? 


Will friends always be friends and what challenges can peopel rise to?

When Charles and Tony’s mother dies the estranged brothers must struggle to pick up the pieces, particularly so given that one of them is mentally challenged and the other bitter about his place within the family. The conflict is drawn out over materialistic issues, but there are other underlying problems which go to the heart of what it means to be part of a family which, in one way or another. has cast one aside. Prejudice, misconceptions and the human condition in all forms feature in this contemporary drama revolving around a group of people who attend the subsequent funeral at the British South Coast. Meet flamboyant gardener Charles, loner Simon, selfless psychic Elaine, narcissistic body-builder Edgar, Martha and her version of unconditional love and many others as they try to deal with the event and its aftermath.
