“I loved the play the first time I read it,” Byrne tells Soaps In Depth. “My character, Fern, is faced with having to make life-changing decisions for her elderly parents who are dealing with several physical and emotional challenges.
“Having seen my own father struggle in this way,” she continues, “I completely understand how this could affect the family structure. It’s a beautiful and topical story for anyone facing such difficult choices and the play explores this with great truth.”
