“I haven’t spent a more nerve-racking evening in the theatre so far this season. I left the show shaken Saturday night. And I’m still thinking about it.” – Liz Nicholls, 12thnight.ca
“I’m just warning you,” grins Salmon, a graduate of the National Theatre School playwriting program. “There’s a scene that’s … visceral. It’s ‘o god, how far is this going to go? O god, it’s getting worse. And we go all the way!” – Liz Nicholls, 12thnight.ca
“Part of why I blog is that I want the theatre artists to know they have moved me and made me think. And the Subscribe or Like playwright and team did.” – Louise Mallory, Ephemeral Pleasures.
“Salmon’s play does drag you in… so much that you’ll be gripping the sides of your seat by the end.”- Tom Murray, Edmonton Journal.
“This show had me unable to look away even though part of my brain was saying I can't watch.” – Kristen Finlay, FinsterFinds.
Preview & CKUA Interview:
Rachel and Miles are struggling. They work long hours at low-paying jobs and struggle to find their place in the world. When will their lives ever really take off?
