PRESS
"...a powerfully polarizing script. There is humour and heartbreak in equal parts..." 10/10 - Carly Maga, The Grid TO

“Tannahill's subtle writing examines divergent approaches to parenthood without condemning anyone, as well as the challenges of childrearing in the 21st century.” NNNN - Debbie Fein-Goldback, NOW Magazine

“If it takes a village to raise a child, then who’s to blame when one falls by the wayside? That’s the question lurking at the heart of Jordan Tannahill’s searing, unforgettable drama. There are no easy answers to be found here, only the shattered realities of two families struggling to put a terrible ordeal in the past.” 5/5 stars - Kevin Scott, Torontoist
