CANADIAN PREMIERE

In a remote countryside cottage, two retired scientists live a seemingly quiet life in the aftermath of a devastating catastrophe at a nearby nuclear power station. When an old friend and colleague unexpectedly turns up at their door, they soon discover the shocking reason for her visit, forcing them to confront their responsibility for past actions and to make a difficult choice about future generations.
 

★★★★ "An essential piece of theatre... There’s nothing better than watching the best actors strut their stuff."
