Meet Paul and Lauren. Highly educated, underemployed suburbanites. Paul’s lost his job. Lauren works double shifts. They don’t know their neighbours. Not their names, anyway. How are you supposed to worry about your neighbours when you barely have time to worry about yourself? Paycheck to paycheck. Precarity.

Driving home. Streetlights are out. A moment of distraction behind the wheel. What was that?

Faced with a moral dilemma, their lives – past, present, possible futures – flash before their eyes.

A World Premiere, created as part of the under development program
Developed with support from Kevin Orr and Theatre 4.669
