Dot and Duff Small, are a cosy young couple whose ordered life suddenly falls into chaos when a street person lands on their door step. The presence of Harris Tweed, as he is known, teases their curiosity at first but succeeds in unleashing some disturbing truths as the play reaches its conclusion.


“Martha Ross’s understated and delicate new play at the Poor Alex Theatre.”

– Ray Conlogue, The Globe and Mail
