An intense, 90-minute play centering on a young man who kidnaps his older brother and takes him on a grueling road trip to conquer his heroin addiction. Mile after mile their relationship is stretched to the limit as the two brothers' repressed memories and hidden motivations are mercilessly exposed. Hugging the Shoulder is a play about the tragedy of missed opportunities. It explores the relationship between addiction and love, and is a plea for us to do what sometimes is the hardest thing of all: to forgive ourselves.
