East Coast playwright Daniel MacIvor’s drama is full of grace notes as three women confront mortality and reach for a deeper connection in this 60-minute Winnipeg production. Too bad flat performances dampen the impact as a woman and her estranged daughter seek solace from a therapist (Carly Gallant) who lacks faith in her own abilities.
Karen O’Brien has a meaty role as prickly recovering alcoholic Leda. Her dry humour lightens the load as she and her fanatically religious daughter (Kristen Einarson) try to come to terms with their derailed lives and relationship. But there’s no relief in a last act so devoid of character it limps to the finish line.
