A deep and intricate therapy session that captivates more than just the two actors involved on stage in this show which deals with the loss of a child, sees weights un-lifted and traumas un-solved. When Peter finds Joe and the courage to see him four years after a tragic event, he is not so welcome in the new and efficient life of the doctor: Joe has moved on, burying his guilt and remorse in the structured life he has created for himself, while Peter still feels his dead child’s weight sitting on his shoulders and can’t free himself from the pictures of the past. Dialogue and song accompany the disappearing and shifting roles of who is patient and who is doctor. This has deep potential.
