One year after the suicide of their teenage son Joel, Debora and Michael Shaun-Hastings sit down to dinner with their son’s bully and his parents. Closure is on the menu, but accusations are the main course as everyone takes a turn in the hot seat for their real or imagined part in the tragedy. Blame shifts over the course of the evening from one person to the next, and questions are raised that no one is prepared to answer.

Jordan Tannahill is a playwright, theatre director, and filmmaker. The Globe and Mail recently called Jordan “ . . . the poster child of a new generation of (theatre? film? dance?) artists for whom “interdisciplinary” is not a buzzword, but a way of life.” His plays have been presented across Canada, and his films have been widely exhibited at venues such as the Toronto International Film Festival, the Art Gallery of Ontario, and the British Film Institute. Jordan received the 2014 Governor General’s Literary Award for Drama for his book Age of Minority: Three Solo Plays. In collaboration with William Ellis, Jordan runs the alternative art-space Videofag in Toronto. Visit www.jordantannahill.com

“…a powerfully polarizing script. There is humour and heartbreak in equal parts…” —Carly Maga, The Grid TO

“Tannahill’s subtle writing examines divergent approaches to parenthood without condemning anyone, as well as the challenges of childrearing in the 21st century.” —Debbie Fein-Goldback, NOW Magazine

“Tannahill’s script makes his characters abandon their pretenses, pick them up again, and then set them on fire.” —S. Bear Bergman, Mooney on Theatre
