What's On

p

Alison and Maddie are at at crossroads. The Toronto couple have been indecisive for months now—Alison, a disenchanted actress, isn’t sure whether she wants to continue in the profession; while Maddie, an entrepreneur, is on the verge of selling the catering business she’s worked five years to build. Hoping that a quiet vacation and change of scenery will clear their heads, the couple take a trip to the West Coast to visit Alison’s father, Brian – an aging playwright who recently moved to a small town to finish his magnum opus. The trip brings into focus each of the three characters’ struggle to find one another (and themselves) through the intense demands of their careers.

This, Here asks big questions what it means to live, whether or not we can be saved by work, and how we carry our loved ones through hard times. MORE
