WHAT IT’S ABOUT
One year after a tragedy, two couples sit down to dinner. Far from finding the closure they seek, the dinner strips bare their good intentions to reveal the layers of hypocrisy beneath. A funny and moving exploration of a hot button issue, rendered in dynamic dialogue by an exciting young playwright. Touchstone’s hit production, directed by Katrina Dunn, features an innovative design and riveting performance from some of Vancouver’s finest actors.
WHY YOU’LL WANT TO SEE IT
If it takes a village to raise a child, then who’s to blame when one falls by the wayside? That’s the question lurking at the heart of Jordan Tannahill’s searing, unforgettable drama. From one of Canada’s most promising young playwrights, winner of the 2014 Governor General’s Award for Drama and the John Hirsch Award, comes a new play where there are no easy answers to be found; only the shattered realities of two families struggling to put a terrible ordeal in the past.
WHAT YOU’LL TAKE AWAY
This is truly theatre at it’s most raw: exploring restorative justice, cyber bullying, and the ever-changing complexities of parenthood in the 21st century.
