Twenty years after dealing with an unplanned pregnancy, a couple run into each other at the wedding of a mutual friend.  Her boyfriends couldn’t make it.  His wife and young son are in bed.  They meet in her room.  There is wine, then scotch, then weed, then coke, then sex.

Linda Griffiths told the first half of the story in her play The Darling Family, which shocked and moved Theatre Passe Muraille audiences in 1991.  If The Darling Family was last rites, Heaven Above Heaven Below is the wake. (
