Four interconnected stories question the idea of the selfless act. Read More >

Generous is a politically charged play which asks what happens when someone is overwhelmed with the desire to help.

A minority government is on the verge of collapse, a ruthless oil executive tells the truth to a reporter, an effusive young law clerk engages in an excrutiating post-coital chat with an aging judge, and a spectacular battle wages over a bucket of fried chicken. Through four interconnected stories, Canadian playwright Michael Healey questions the idea of the selfless act.
