Sol, a blind piano player, is asked by the Goldberg family to write a speech. Quick to observe the nuances of emotion that run through this family of combatants, what follows is a journey of laughter and love, spotted with the occasional furtive tears, as Sol marks the family's births, deaths and marriages through his speeches. His vision, however, is somewhat obscured when it comes to acknowledging his own heart.
This wise and witty play observes how honesty, objectivity and affection can survive the most tangled of relationships.
"...one of our leading playwrights. His combination of comic writing and serious critical messages is masterly." - The Australian Jewish News.
