Preview - January 23, 2019

A comic drama about survivors and those who love them

A World Première, a co-production with Tarragon Theatre

In his Cape Breton trailer park home, Dougie is preparing for a visit from his boyhood friend Allen, whom he hasn't seen in 25 years. Everything starts off great, laughs are had and embarrassing memories shared. But as the evening wears on, shadows from the past emerge and questions resurface about what things appear to be and what they really are; what we remember and what we choose to forget. With themes of family dysfunction, lost love, new passions, and the machinations of small town personal dramas, this play seeks to offer healing for the vulnerable who have suffered injustice at the hands of the powerful.

"MacIvor sees connections hidden to most and makes exquisite theatre in the process." -
