This play is very personal to me. It's hard for me to convey all of the feelings I have for this play, but I can say with confidence that this play is as devastating as it is beautiful.

The plot surrounds two close childhood friends who meet for an afternoon well after each woman has started her own family. The play oscillates between the afternoon and memories the women share. The ending is horrifying. However, I have never been one to believe a story has to be "happy" or "uplifting" to be great

While I'm not the most well versed person in the world when it comes to Canadian drama, I have my opinions on this play. I appreciate that it's written by a female and concerns the nature of a friendship and how an event from the past has made its way into the present. Gave me a good perspective on life in rural Ottawa. I will state that the publishers could have done a better job of editing, as I found numerous typographical errors.

This play is an upsetting yet thought-provoking commentary of the psyche of two traumatized women remembering an accident that occurred decades ago that continues to haunt them every day. Though the events were ambiguous at first, the alternation between the past an present artfully unravelled the story of their friendship leading to the life-shaking event.

This is a good play. Thompson does a great job of looking at the traumas of two very different best friends at three different stages of their lives. This play has also been made into a movie sharing the same title, which features Rachel McAdams. Both the play and the movie are worth checking out!
