"My Brother's Keeper" Filial Duty Drama by Tony Breeze 2f + 4m (2NSP) ISBN 1-872758-09-6 £7.00 each Royalties £50pp A middle-aged writer returns home to his brother who is looking after their dying father. The writer left home at an early age to find fame and fortune while the other brother, who was equally talented musically, stayed to look after the ageing parents. The writer and the brother's wife do not get on and he has thoughtlessly invited his young actress girlfriend to the house. The stress of looking after the old man builds to a climax at the end of the first act when the stay-at-home brother suggests that the only way out of their predicament is euthanasia. While they are arguing about whether to do such a thing the decision is taken away from them at the end of the first act when the old man dies a natural death. In the second act the writer is made to face up to his own shortcomings as a father. This play was chosen from 150 scripts to reach the final of the Pittsburgh 2,000 New Play Festival, first read in public in the UK at the Questors Theatre, Ealing, London and later published in Holland & Belgium by Vink & Co.
