‘A muggy, humid night, the kind you’d nearly go mad if you’ve nothing to do. You know how I get when it’s hot …’

On a hot summer’s night in Montréal, eleven people stand on their balconies by the light of the full moon and tell their stories of guilt, grief and heartbreak.

A provocative and emotional play about love, sex, faith and forgiveness by one of Canada’s great playwrights.


A major new production for Rough Magic directed by exciting, young director, Tom Creed (nominated Best Director, Irish Times Irish Theatre Awards 2007 for Attempts on her Life).
