Fashion, Power, Guilt and the Charity of Families

(1993)
A Book by

 
 
Mother and daughter explore the social and private worlds of the modern family in this funny, poignant and gently challenging play. When a department of government bureaucrats begins to receive widespread complaints of loneliness, it attempts to legislate a remedy by creating a 'family unit' which appears on the surface at least, to be a stereotypical suburban family. But it is not until the 'family unit' looks inward and addresses its problems - including the unspoken secret that has haunted the parents for years, that they become a real family.
