The Stillborn Lover
by Timothy Findley
Winner of the Ells Award for Best Play and the Chalmers Canadian Play Award
The abrupt recall of a highly regarded Canadian ambassador from his post, the mysterious death of a Russian youth found brutally murdered in a Moscow hotel room, and the ambitions of an Ottawa diplomat combine to explore the darker side of loyalty and commitment. The stakes are high and diplomatic careers hang by a thread. This play is an alluring tale of mystery, betrayal, diplomacy and love.
Recommended for age 14 and up. Mature themes.
