Two Ships Passing is the sequel to Dave Carley's Midnight Madness, which received its world premiere in 1988, and went on to become one of Canada's most widely produced plays. In the decade since their encounter in Midnight Madness, Anna and Wesley's lives have changed considerably: Anna has recently been appointed to the bench and Wesley has become a minister. Anna's son, Jason, thirteen when we last saw him in Midnight Madness, is now a university graduate - in business administration. The trio's political views have diverged over the years and the once sexually repressed Wesley has even managed to develop a few sexual peccadilos. Set against the public background of Ontario under Mike Harris's "Common Sense Revolution" and the private background of personal successes and failures, Two Ships Passing provides theatre-goer and play-reader alike with the lively and witty intellectual debate normally associated with Shaw.
