    "There was like food on the counter. With the food and people - It just felt like a cozy environment, kind of like a family dinner. Where you can sit down and like have a good discussion. Like a back and forth discussion, you know what I mean?” – James, 21 years old, conservative

    Playwright Annabel Soutar teams up with co-authors Alex Ivanovici and Brett Watson, and director Chris Abraham, to create a thrilling theatrical response to the rise of extremism and tribalism in political discourse today. Since 2017, the play’s creative team has been curating and recording encounters in which four Canadians of wildly different ideological leanings face off and collectively confront the issues that most divide them. This new serialized documentary project premieres in Toronto with Episode 1.
