He’s just trying to cook a curry for the man he’s grown to love. He’s been neglecting his maw, not calling, not joining in with zoom trivia. Now, as he tries to build the nerve to say how he feels, it is her voice that comes to the fore. Taunting him, criticising, teasing and above all telling the truth the way only a mother can. Johnny McKnight’s exquisite and gentle comedy, rides waves of self doubt, insecurity and fragile romance, in one mans attempt to express his love for his friend and come to terms with the voices in his head.
