From the Publisher
Winner of the 2013 Governor General''s Literary Award for Drama In Greenland , the discovery of a new island off the nation''s coast mirrors a growing rift between the island''s discoverer and his family. In Iceland , set against the backdrop of the banking crisis, a confrontation between a real estate agent and a tenanttakes an unexpected turn. A young woman''s idealism is challenged by the infamous whale hunt in Faroe Islands . Nicolas Billon''s critically acclaimed trilogy asks the audience to consider the values that guide human relations. As the characters confront us with their stories - at times confession, at times diatribe - we are forced to reckon with their yearning to belong to something larger than themselves. A striking new voice that can be described as a hybrid of Wallace Shawn and Neil Labute, Fault Lines showcases the wit and dark humour of its author, and offers a compelling exploration of relationships and the challenges of connecting to others in a meaningful way.
