About the story:


A young banker returns from New York to his birth city Amsterdam to be present at the funeral of his younger brother. Before the funeral he writes letters, alternately melancholic, rebellious or calm in tone, in an attempt to come into contact with the brother he never had any real contact with. A monologue as a mourning process.


About the playwright:

Simon Stephens is a multi-award-winning playwright.Awards include the Pearson Award for Best New Play for Port and the Olivier Award for Best New Play for On the Shore of the Wide World.For many years Simon taught on the Young Writers’ Programme at the Royal Court, and he is now a Professor of Scriptwriting at Manchester Metropolitan University.
