Jack will be speaking to us about the production of the play written by Mishka Lavigne and translated by Neil Blackadder. It received the Governor General’s Award for Drama French Language (2019).

Elsie has just lost her mother, and Matt is searching for his past. They’re brought together by the hole that opened up in the asphalt and the contents of the car that fell to the bottom. 
Haven is a play about loss, about absence, about emptiness. But it’s also a play about overflow, about too many memories and too many regrets. 

 speaks of friendships of necessity. Of the people we meet when we need them the most; those we meet when everything around us crumbles. Haven in the storm.
