When the Monoghan sisters lose their parents in a car accident, Deirdre is poised to enter university. Now she must care for her beloved older sister Isabelle, who’s adopted, First Nations and affected by fetal alcohol syndrome. Deirdre struggles to manage until twin rays of hope appear in the form of a gorgeous vacuum cleaner salesman and a family friend. Their helpful impulses will have startling consequences. A powerful play penned by one of Canada’s sharpest playwrights.
