Play by Hope McIntyre

26 Characters (with doubling can be done with 8 actors); Full-length Drama

Based on a true story of incest and infanticide, the play explores the journey of Marie.  After years of incest, Marie’s daughters are now giving birth to her husband’s children.  Marie kills the babies at birth – is it an act of mercy, pity, rage or vengeance?   How does a family weighed down with guilt and shame find a path to forgiveness?  The play explores the personal reaction of those involved but also the community’s response to this horrendous tale.
