You’re seven years old. Mum’s in hospital. Dad says she’s ‘done something stupid’. She finds it hard to be happy.
You start a list of everything that’s brilliant about the world. Everything worth living for:
1. Ice cream … 2. Water fights… 3. Staying up past your bedtime and being allowed to watch TV … 4. The colour yellow … 5. Things with stripes … 6. Rollercoasters … 7. People falling over
You know she’s read it because she’s corrected your spelling. A play about depression and the lengths we go to for those we love.
