A play by Lynne Reid Banks.
The action takes place in the kitchen of the Boltons' house in the suburbs of an Industrial town in Yorkshire.
The Boltons would' probably describe themselves as ordinary folk. There are Mother and Dad, with their three children living at home, in a Yorkshire industrial town. Bill is studying to be an architect's draughtsman, Milly is galloping through adolescence, and her elder sister, Jo, does extra typing work in the evenings in the hope that she will be able to save enough money to continue studying medicine. And each of the Boltons has friends and admirers enough to keep the house well supplied with visitors. But this particular day a different sort of visitor is awaited. and the occasion is one of great importance for the family. A while ago, Ned Bolton was involved in an accident which deprived him of the use of his legs; an operation and treatment have followed, and now the specialist is coming from London who will say when he will walk again. Everyone confidently expects that this will be soon, and that he will shortly get back to work. But what if Dr Loveridge's verdict is not hopeful? (Peter Currie)
