About Book

Jonathan's eighteen. Bright boy. Great future. People expect things... Especially now that his dad's walked out, his mum's got her career and Danny needs looking after. Danny - his brother with Down's syndrome and a love of creative swearing. But Jonathan's best friend needs him too. It's hard work burgling houses all on your own...

A lot can happen in a year. Especially when it's the most important year of your life.

Flight Path, a funny, touching and unflinching portrait of brotherly love, published together with the short play Undercarriage, opened at The Bush Theatre in September 2007 in a co-production with Out of Joint.
