THE TIMMINS CHILDREN by Mark Perlberg, directed by Jeremy Cohen

The time is October, 1992. Malcolm Bundage, a Canadian physician, has just received a lifetime achievement award and Yvette Bergeron, a renowned reporter for the Vancouver Sun, visits his Toronto home ostensibly to interview Bundage for a syndicated story about the award. During the course of the play, we learn that Bergeron and Bundage share an unfortunate past. They force each other to explore and attempt to resolve issues that arose decades earlier. Their connection ultimately enables them to find common ground and uncover emotions they each thought had been buried long ago.
