“Smart, funny, political: if this play were a guy, I’d date him.” – Colin Thomas, The Georgia Straight

“This is a terrific, even terrifying, play that delivers some surprises.” – Vancouver Courier

a genuine, entertaining and emotional trip across sometimes rough seas that won’t drown you with its cautionary tale.”Gayvancouver.net

BMW-driving, bleached-blond Annie Iverson teeters alone in a kayak on a vast stretch of water. Having set out to save her son from the dangers of his radical environmentalist girlfriend, she unwittingly throws herself into a path of events larger than she could ever have imagined. In a time when “green” is the new black, award winning playwright Jordan Hall ’s intelligent, witty and provocative story of catastrophic global proportions makes the political personal. Susan Hogan, who was nominated for a Jessie Award for her performance, is “completely compelling” (Vancouver Courier), as she navigates the role, full of humour and heart.

Written by Jordan Hall. Directed by Rachel Peake. Starring Susan Hogan. Featuring Marisa Smith and Sebastian Kroon

A Firehall Arts Centre presentation. Produced by Alley Theatre.
