Description - Enlightenment by Shelagh Stephenson

Disappearance of son provides compelling study of grief and loss "At three o'clock in the morning, this is what I think. I think somebody killed him. They killed him, God, I don't know how I'm uttering these words...they killed him because he's white and Western and they hated him. And it wasn't personal. Which somehow makes it worse." When Lia and Nick's son disappears when overseas, all they have is an email that he was thinking of going to Jakarta, leaving them with their own grief and uncertainty. And then a stranger appears, uncannily like their son, covered in scars and holding Adam's passport...Enlightenment is a powerful study of parental grief and of hope amidst uncertainty.; Published to tie-in with the world premier at the Abbey Theatre, Dublin, in March 2005.; Major new work by the writer of the Olivier Award-winning West End hit The Memory of Water.
