HUSH is a response to how I feel about the suicide crisis in my hometown Kuujjuaq, Quebec. A suicide rate twelve times higher than the National average made no sense to me until I asked myself: How did we go from once being the strongest survivors in the world with no outside help, to facing the greatest loss of our young people to suicide in the world? This is the question that drove me to create the play HUSH and to explore how a community is impacted by the loss of someone to suicide. – Sylvia Cloutier
