Three women in my family have a cancer-causing genetic mutation. *
One of them is old, one of them is me and the other is dead.
In four years time, I have some options. **
Basically this is a play written about my relatives without their permission.
They won’t mind. ***
** Involves a scalpel.
*** I hope.

"Lost Watch’s latest show could be maudlin, but isn’t. It feels honest, funny and true... This is a show that speaks across the generations, resurrects the dead, ponders the unlucky lottery of life, and reminds one that what is known can never again be unknown."
