Description

A chilling psychological thriller, Little One is the haunting story of adopted siblings Aaron and Claire—one the definition of normal, the other deeply disturbed and unpredictable—and the strange lives of their neighbours, a man and his mail-order bride.

In Other People’s Children, wealthy young power couple Ben and Ilana hire Sati, a live-in nanny, to care for their baby daughter, but Sati ends up being more than a caretaker, exposing the fragility of Ben and Ilana's marriage. Is she filling the holes of their relationship, or widening cracks that will shatter their family?

High school is hard, especially for Neyssa, who is not from a privileged family like her best friend Bijou. When the two get into a physical fight at school, they must confront what’s really bothering Neyssa. In This World looks at what friendship means to two teenage girls from vastly different social backgrounds, while dealing with racism, class, and reputation.

Reviews

"Hannah Moscovitch is our most competent playwright, and that's not faint praise. " - Robert Cushman, National Post

"[Little One is] a psycho thriller, in fact, but a witty, smart and insidious one that owes more to Roman Polanski than to A Nightmare on Elm Street. " - Martin Morrow, Globe and Mail
