When brothers Kyle and Hamilton Best lose their mother, the victim of a freak accident involving the wrong end of a drag queen, the stage is set for a sibling showdown. Long
nursed hurts, and deep-buried grievances claw their way to the surface, as brothers and rivals for their mother’s affection sort out the funeral arrangements, their mother’s estate, and what to do with her beloved dog Enzo.
Hamilton, straight, married and settled, is a stark contrast to his younger brother Kyle, who is gay, and leading a decidedly less conventional life. Their dead mother Bunny occasionally pops in to add commentary to the proceedings, but the real star of the show is Enzo, a roguish mutt with a taste for chaos and near-pathological amounts of charm.
Canadian playwright Daniel MacIvor’s morbidly hilarious examination of sibling dynamics and mortality takes on an unexpectedly emotional depth as the two men must face each other, as well as their own familial dysfunction.
