About the play

During the height of Canada’s involvement in the Afghanistan War, a soldier returns home from active duty. She is broken. Her husband thinks he can fix her. She wants to disappear. He tries to unravel the mystery of what exactly happened to her overseas. She finds herself abandoned by the country she served, in a near catatonic state, and physically immobile. He wants his wife back. She can no longer be a mother. Their basement suite becomes a prison. A former war comrade shows up to make things better. He doesn’t.
