But there, she faces another and more difficult challenge – she walks in on Peter and her son, Trevor, kissing. What will Harmony do now? What would you do?

Off the Page is a monthly public play reading series launching at Presentation House during a pandemic, in North Vancouver BC. Produced by Janet Hodgkinson and Wanda Nowicki, the series focuses on new plays written by lower mainland authors. By presenting plays as rehearsed readings, Off the Page encourages the audience to imagine what they cannot see. Playwrights are present to hear their work interpreted by accomplished local actors, followed by talkback sessions with the audience.
