About the Play:
Torontonian couple, Alison and Maddie, just got back from a trip to Gibsons, BC to visit Alison’s father, Brian, who she hasn’t seen in three years. Recalling events as photos are projected, we see their trip submerge into a murky world of decomposing appearances and unresolved issues as the distinction between wild and civilized elides. 

Character Breakdown:
Brian. 50 - 60. A good father, if not aloof. Once a successful painter, now lives on the Sunshine Coast where he works for scraps. Divorced, uninterested in romantic relationships. Did lots of acid in the 60s, where he and his friends considered themselves revolutionaries. Still waiting for the revolution to happen.
