In a Word archiveGrief and comedy collide, and ordinary turns of phrase take on dangerous new meanings in this critically acclaimed play. Today is the two-year anniversary of Fiona's son's disappearance, and still nothing makes sense to her. Not her blas? husband, the incompetent detective, nor the neighbourhood kidnapper who keeps introducing himself in the checkout line. As Fiona delves back into her memories of that fateful day, to uncover that crucial missing piece, grief and comedy collide, and ordinary turns of phrase take on dangerous new meanings.
