One Listener…. Five Characters… Five Stories… Guilt… Love… Jealousy… Denial…Desperation. Driven by passion and longing to share what is hidden in their hearts they search for someone who will listen without judgment. But listening is more than just hearing. It’s giving in. It’s an act of generosity. That is what gives us humanity. Who is capable of so much love?

Heather Dick directs this touching play that explores what lies beneath “our masks” and what often goes unseen. With an amazing cast composed of: Michael Miranda, Illya Konstantin, Barbara de la Fuente, Brian Young, Toni Ellwand and Jasmine D’Costa, this play will touch every member of the audience and will be remain in their minds and hearts for long time.
