When 4-year-old Claire is adopted into the family, 6-year-old Aaron has to learn to “love” his new monster of a sister. Told through the now adult voices of its two main characters, Little One weaves stories of childhood horror and teenage humiliation into a twisted, wryly funny, and ultimately haunting narrative. One that asks how far you’d let a psychopath control your life, and what you’d do to regain it.

“Moscovitch’s wryly funny, scary, nuanced script is gripping from its first minutes… a haunting theatre hour about the nature of love” — Jon Kaplan, NOW Magazine

Moscovitch “might be the best playwright Toronto’s got” (Toronto Life) and “her latest offering Little One simply proves that she is no flash in the pan” (Plank Magazine). Perhaps best known in Vancouver for her plays East of Berlin at the Firehall Arts Centre in 2010 and The Russian Play/Mexico City presented by Ruby Slippers also in 2010. Four years later Alley Theatre is thrilled to bring such an esteemed playwright back to our city. Moscovitch’s work has won multiple Dora Mavor Moore Awards, and she’s been nominated for the Governor General’s Award, the Carol Bolt Award, the Toronto Arts Council Foundation Emerging Artist Award, the K.M Hunter Award, and the international Susan Smith Blackburn Prize.
