Forty-seven Roses

A dramatisation of Peter Sheridan's compassionate memoir of how he coped with his father's unexpected death, and the realisation that the English woman who spent summers with them in Dublin when he was a boy was actually having an affair with his father.

Even more surprising was the discovery that his mother knew all about it.
