Ray Fearon stars in Tanya Barfield’s powerfully poignant drama, as an African American mathematics professor, whose life is falling apart. With overtones of A Christmas Carol and Twelve Years a Slave, he conjures up three generations of his family in his insomnia (all played by Fehinti Balogun), who reveal the hardships and victories that have shaped their lives.
