There's no friend like an old friend.

Heather and Carla haven't seen each other in years. Carla lives a down and out hand-to-mouth existence while Heather looks like she has it all. During an unexpected catch up, Heather presents Carla with a bag of money and a deadly proposition. But what seems at first like a straightforward arrangement is just the first twist in a tightening spiral that will pull them both in. 

At once thrilling and darkly funny, THE WASP written by Morgan Lloyd Malcolm is a sharp reminder that if you don’t deal with your past you should expect it to deal with you. 

Starring Bree Peters and Miriama McDowell, with direction from Sam Snedden, and design by Jane HakaraiaMeg Rollandi and Emi Pogoni.
