By Hannah Moscovitch
Directed by Natasha Mytnowych
2013 Dora Mavor Moore Award Nominee – OUTSTANDING NEW PLAY


Two adopted siblings grow up together in affluent Ottawa. Claire and Aaron love each other with all their hearts. But for some people, loving and destroying are the same thing. A new production of this stylish lullaby thriller by the creators of The Russian Play.



Theatre Crisis was founded by Artistic Director Natasha Mytnowych with Caitlin Gallichan-Lowe in 2002. Theatre Crisis has produced over a dozen critically acclaimed projects, including the Dora-nominated The Russian Play by Hannah Moscovitch at Factory Theatre. In 2013 the company toured Little One to Victoria, BC, Whitehorse, YK and Banff, AB.



Hannah Moscovitch is one of the most prolific playwrights of her generation and considered one of the strongest voices in the country. Her works have been produced by Canada’s leading theatres, and been nominated for the Governor General’s and Dora Awards.
