Winner of the 2013 Governor General's Literary Award for Drama
In Greenland , the discovery of a new island off the nation's coast mirrors a growing rift between the island's discoverer and his family.
In Iceland , set against the backdrop of the banking crisis, a confrontation between a real estate agent and a tenant takes an unexpected turn.
A young woman's idealism is challenged by the infamous whale hunt in Faroe Islands .
Nicolas Billon's critically acclaimed trilogy asks the audience to consider the values that guide human relations. As the characters confront us with their stories - at times confession, at times diatribe - we are forced to reckon with their yearning to belong to something larger than themselves. A striking new voice that can be described as a hybrid of Wallace Shawn andNeil Labute, Fault Lines showcases the wit and dark humour of its author, and offers a compelling exploration of relationships and the challenges of connecting to others in a meaningful way.
