Kill Me Now

Synopsis:
Normal is relative. Kill Me Now is a black comedy about Jake who has sacrificed his career as a writer to care for his teenage son Joey. Both are keeping secrets - Jake about his love life and Joey about his plans for the future. But when disaster strikes, they are forced to ask who's really looking after who. Bittersweet, fast-paced, ricocheting between the comedy and tragedy of disability, Kill Me Now is a funny and moving play about how we care for the people we love.

True Love Lies

True Love Lies
In an average middle-class Canadian family, Carolyn and Kane embarrass their grown-up children, flamboyant, job-seeking Madison and teenage depressive computer geek Royce, with their displays of affection and noisy lovemaking. However when Madison goes for a job in a new restaurant and manager David says he used to know her father, the dinner table revelation that David and Kane were more than just friends changes the family relationships substantially, although it is all handled in a cool, middle-class way.
