The Swearing Jar shortlisted for Governor General’s Literary Awards

Congratulations to Kate Hewlett for her play The Swearing Jar being shortlisted for the 2013 Governor General’s Literary Award for Drama.

Meet Carey and Simon, an otherwise-perfect married couple with a bit of a swearing problem. They’re determined to kick the habit by the time their baby is born. Too bad that’s not their only problem. Simon has a secret. And Carey has a new friend–a musician named Owen that she met at a bookstore. With quirky characters, music and gentle humour, this lovely and intricately constructed story is about meeting challenges head-on and finding hope.
