Jon plays Dan, a man in his 50s who is living alone. After a dear friend passing, he is forced to look back on his own troubled youth and face up to his demons. The play is at times poignant and tragic yet also has a warmth and humour as Jon slips seamlessly in and out of the many uproariously funny characters.
The people he depicts are surreal but tinged with tragedy and Jon plays each with his amazing ability of character acting and hilarious humour.
