Synopsis: A gentle, compassionate comedy about Bill & Francis. Bill, brain-damaged by a teenage accident,has been taken by his sister to a beach side cottage. The difficulties of the situation and their mutual frustration is lightened by love, understanding and courage. Bill, unable to speak to those on stage, shares with the audience, in a dry sardonic way, the real feelings and observations of a middle- aged man trapped in the bodily functions of a child.
