Descriptions of the characters
A powerful one-act drama, well-told, treating the central theme sensitively but without excessive sentimentality. Multiple locations but designed for very simple staging.
Jessie is the favoured daughter, getting perhaps too much of Mum's interest in her Table Tennis efforts. Her brother is jealous, and things take a turn for the worse when Jessie is diagnosed with leukaemia. Her Mum must admit that she is adopted, and so her brother Rob cannot be a marrow donor. Rob sets out on a quest to find a donor sibling.
