Readthrough of plays

Lyla Lockhart and her brother Luke arrive at Craggs Bottom Hospital in Lancashire, where their mother has died unexpectedly. Whilst in a room with their motherís body, they spend the time mocking the past and pondering the future. Wondering whether they will ever be released from the power of their motherís influence, some surprising items among her effects lead them to believe she wasnít the formidable character they had thought. This gives them courage, until they make a surprising discovery.....

A little loose-tongued, they all begin to reveal their secrets.....
