About the show

Known for her up-to-the-minute plays with shocking twists, Hannah Moscovitch takes on the topic of sexual misconduct in this present-day play. This story features two perspectives on the same relationship, asking the question, who owns this narrative?

Jon Macklem is a teacher in the middle of his third divorce. Lonely and full of self-loathing, he begins an illicit relationship with Annie—one of his nineteen-year-old students. The echoes of their relationship reverberate in the years that follow, growing from a rumble to a roar once #MeToo breaks.
