In Helen and I, sisters Helen (49, a single mother to Evvy) and Lynn (47, childless, married to Tony) return home to attend to their dying father. Tony arrives uninvited to ‘take care’ of Lynn – then contrives to bring Evvy into the circle (who has ideas and questions of her own). In the hothouse conditions of a summer’s weekend, the future emerges from hardwon – and hard-fought-over – rearrangements of the past.
