Ottawa writer-actor Tim C. Murphy spins an audaciously intricate web in this fast-paced one-hour drama.

A vibrant performer, Murphy sets the story in Kuwait, where he works as a schoolteacher. His protagonist Andy, who is also a teacher in Kuwait, lands in jail after a bootlegging taxi driver literally leaves him holding the bag during a rum run. Faced with a life-or-death decision, Andy gains some clarity about his own life as it intersects with the lives of his prison guards and other characters.

Murphy deftly weaves their multiple story threads together, incorporating elements of suspense and tragedy into a fascinating tale of ultimate redemption.

— Pat St. Germain

 

From the Fringe program:

Does happiness influence intuition? Andys life, teaching in Kuwait, was going well...until things got really complicated. A consequential collision of illegal moonshine, misguided decisions, the Gulf War, lost love, regret, and hope.
