a Shifting Point Theatre production

The Young & The Restless: Then She

April 15 – 26, 2003

at Performance Works, Granville Island

by Adam Cowart

Set in present day Vancouver, Then She tells the story of a husband and wife who must come to grips with the disappearance and possible murder of their daughter, and the subsequent impact it has on their relationship with those around them, and to each other. Conversations between characters are replayed over and over again. Multiple strains of dialogue are intertwined together to create a disorientated state that gives expression to the nightmarish world these characters have been plunged into. The lines between reality, fantasy and memory blur as the playwright weaves together a play that examines loss, love, and the outer regions of justice and personal civility.
