Where to buy it


Murdoch is a charming, yarn-spinning, old-school, white Canadian cop. His wife is a doctor: young, beautiful, smart, a Muslim Uyghur-and a suspect. She has a lot to confess. So does he. Murder, betrayal, politics and the war on terror: a love story. Two Rooms was awarded the 2010 John V. Hicks Manuscript Award from the Saskatchewan Writers Guild and the 2010 Uprising National Playwriting Competition from the Downstage Performance Society and the Consortium for Peace Studies at the University of Calgary. The play is being translated into French by Governor General's Award winner, Jean-Marc Dalpé, and will be produced by Sudbury's Le Théatre du Novel-Ontario and in Ottawa by Théatre de la Vieille.
