Abstract: Husband. Father. Gamer. Spy. Dead Drop is a two-act dramatic play that tells the story of a troubled Canadian Forces officer who commits treason with Russian intelligence and how the fall-out of this crime forces him to confront deeper secrets about his life and his soul. Sparked by his arrest and interrogation by the RCMP, the play follows the officer down the rabbit hole of his life as a father and his work as a spy. Inspired by the real-life arrest and conviction of Canadian spy Jeffrey Delisle, the play is the tale of a man whose personal betrayals and multiple identities exploded into a national crisis as well as the haunting journey of a father struggling to maintain his sense of duty in a bizarre world of secrets and lies.
