Stanley, 25-year-old wunderkind lawyer, has a bewildering new client: a bright young man from the suburbs who's confessed to a senseless murder. As Stanley is drawn deeper into his troubled client's life, everything he believes about his place in the world is thrown into doubt. And his own life - enviable, seemingly perfect - starts to fracture.
This new Canadian play, from a rising young Toronto-based playwright, delivers a fast, slick, psychological portrait of today's twenty-somethings and their seemingly perfect world.
Directed by Gregor McElvogue and Rachel Klem. With Ishai Buchbinder, Hilary Edwards, Matthew Hager, Scott Heath and Alice Rose Turner. Stage Managed by Karen Burns.
