The second play in Robert Holman's acclaimed trilogy of short plays, Making Noise Quietly.
It is 1987. May Appleton, whose son is serving in the Falklands, receives the visit that every mother dreads.
Making Noise Quietly was first performed at the Bush Theatre, London, in June 1986.
'Holman's instinct for truth, and an unaffected ability to spot what's poignant in it, is what one remembers: that, and a paradoxical impression of spare richness, astringent abundance...'The Times
