Abstract: This thesis is an investigation of the gender identity, familial relationships and the impact of the external world on the inner self and human interactions in a privileged Caribbean space in the form of a play. Unfinished is the story of a dysfunctional family trying to piece themselves back together. The story follows an anachronic timeline: it begins in the present and moves through the past. The story begins with Solomon returning home from to the news that his sister is currently in the hospital in a coma. His mother is planning a large family breakfast much to Solomon’s disdain. This begins n excavation of family, death and unspoken truths. Celia’s sexuality, Solomon’s disregard for his family and their mother’s need to keep up appearances are all unearthed before breakfast.  
Description: Unfinished explores the inner workings of a dysfunctional upper class Jamaican family. Solomon and his Mother come together after years of silence after his sister Celia is about to be removed from life support after a suicide attempt. The question, "how did we end up here?" is the central idea behind this challenging work.
