2013 Dora Award Nominee – Outstanding Performance – Female (Deborah Drakeford)


Beatrice is a young woman with a chronic condition that has left her bed-ridden for eight long years. She needs constant care: someone else has to feed her, wash her and dress her.  Bea’s mother – a prickly, protective barrister – hires campy and verbally incontinent Ray as her daughter’s new caretaker. In Ray, Bea finds a friend she can trust, who helps her as she wrestles with her illness and supports her as she grapples with an almost unimaginable decision. (
