The set is deceptively simple. Long two-by-fours, wrapped with newspapers line the sides of the stage. At times they are the “noise” of Parliament Hill. Later, they are the bars of jail cells and a Muskoka forest.

Andy Moro, who has done amazing work with VideoCabaret, has once again created something special. The set is minimal yet highly evocative. It allows the audience to use our imagination. It also allows the writing and acting to shine.
