Montreal independent theatre company d² productions presents Within the Glass, by Canadian and Concordia alumni playwright Anna Chatterton. Directed by Dale Hayes, this play was shortlisted for the 2017 Governor General’s Awards.
Two very different couples meet after a critical mistake at a fertility clinic: a fertilized egg has been implanted into the wrong woman. Over the course of an awkward and absurd evening, they fight to determine the uncertain future of their IVF child. The situation forces each of them to reassess their relationships, the depths of their desire to parent, and their hopes for the future.
MICHAEL: Mid to late 40s. Married to Darah. Works as an investment banker. Desperately wants to be a father.
SCOTT: 30-40. Married to Linda. He is a writer. Resistant to the process.
*The roles of Darah and Linda have been filled.
