Set out of time and place, four friends and those around them struggle to cope with increasing conflict taking over their country. As their world is turned upside down they are forced to confront who they are in the face of harsh new realities. As one turns to the military, the others grow increasingly cautious of the rights being taken in the name of safety and fluctuate between denial and impulsive action. As the turmoil drags on and desperation kicks in they must decide what parts of themselves they will and will not sacrifice in the pursuit of freedom and justice.
Cast size: 11 actors
Casting note: Characters can be played by actors of any gender, any ancestry, and nearly any age or ability. Pronouns are written as s/he, her/him, hers/his in dialogue, they/them in stage directions, but once actors are cast their preferred pronouns should be used. Every effort should be made for the play to be cast primarily, if not entirely, with actors who identify as disabled, female, BIPOC, and/or LGBTQIA2S+.
Can be done with a minimum of 11 actors, potentially up to 33 actors if desired.
The play can be accessed by visiting the Canadian Play Outlet.
