Grab this opportunity to see Touchstone's powerful ensemble piece from the 2014/15 season if you missed it the first time. Treat a friend if you saw it last season!
Lauded by critics as “...excruciatingly good theatre: it feels like open heart surgery” (Courier), last season’s hit is back at the Vancity Culture Lab, following a run at the Evergreen Cultural Centre.
Two couples sit down to dinner and ignite a moving and funny exploration of a hot button issue, rendered in dynamic dialogue by an exciting young writer.
