Publisher's Summary

WordTheatre, the short story performance specialists, casts the perfect actors to bring great contemporary writing to life.

Recorded live with many of the authors present, these nine exquisitely crafted stories explore the one topic that everyone knows something about: families. Whether through birth, adoption, or marriage, whatever the relationships, they provide rich fodder for our talented authors - at times amusing, at others, achingly painful.
