George – Scott Roodvoets
Paula (Officer Rezwani)- Ruth Laliberte

Lydia is spending some quiet time at home while her husband George is off at the cottage with his cousin Steve, when two police officers arrive with some horrible news. There’s been an accident and George is left incomplete. Can something that is lost really be replaced? Can we ever be made whole again? Does it matter where the parts come from? George returns home to a partner who is trying to make him come to grips with his alterations, but will he return the favor? Can they survive the transplant?

A key is a device that is used to operate a lock. The key serves as a security token for access to the locked area; only persons having the correct key can open the lock and gain access. Locks and keys have managed to infuse themselves into every aspect of our lives. Join our PHD student as she conducts her experiment to determine whether the participants reveal themselves as locks or keys.
