Kill Your Parents
Set in the title’s tiny gothic town of 4000, the three Turtle siblings meet in the middle of a brutal snowstorm in order to sign the will of their recently deceased grandmother. Susan, (Allie Dunbar) the eldest of the clan, hosts her two younger siblings who have both made the journey from their hometown of Vancouver. Perry, (Libby Osler) freshly dumped, and Frank, Mike Eisner) recently released from prison, are met with an onslaught of compulsory nostalgia as Susan evades signing the will in the hopes of elongating the family reunion. When Susan’s husband Paul, (Jimi Shlag) arrives with a Greek feast, the evening takes an interesting turn. A failed attempt at dinnertime civility turns into a code red domestic exposing the Turtle’s dark family history.
When your best friend kills himself and Facebook stalking your ex-girlfriend just ain’t what it used to be, look no further than rolling in duck feces and living in the park. Unfortunately for Hogan, his sister and the cops don’t share his same enthusiasm for DIY self-help. After Wrestling is a slacker-comedy turned suicide-mystery that finds itself in a booze- and grief- fuelled magic realism debate on love, life, and after-death.
