Liz is a troubled woman, who read a violent story in a newspaper and can't get it out of her head. This obsession drives away her partner Richard; or maybe he left because she was pregnant with Dan.
Years later, when Dan is old enough to look after himself, he ends up looking after his mother, sourcing her drugs so she can escape the thoughts in her head. It is a venture doomed to failure; and his situation is not improved when Richard returns to meet his son.
A Window: A Triptych is a play about the cruelty that exists even when there is love. It was first staged by Big Brum at Golden Hillock School, Birmingham, on 19 October 2009.
