About the Book
Governor General Award-winning playwright (farewel) Ian Ross is back with an engaging drama that breaks new ground in his ever-expanding exploration of relationships. Evan and Dawn are getting to know each other; as a young Native man, Evan is unsure of how to approach dating a “middle-class” white woman. The “gap” he perceives, real or otherwise, between his culture, his politics, and his lifestyle, and Dawn’s, continues to widen, preventing them both from moving forward. The two young lovers struggle not so much to keep the balance as to find it.
