Husband. Father. Gamer. Spy.
An Ordinary Asset tells the story of a troubled Canadian Forces officer who commits treason and how the fall-out of this crime forces him to confront deeper secrets in his life and his soul. Sparked by his arrest and interrogation by the RCMP, the play follows him down the rabbit hole of his life as a father and his work as a spy. Inspired by real events, An Ordinary Asset is a compelling tale of a man whose personal betrayals and multiple identities exploded into a national crisis and the haunting depiction of a father struggling to keep his family safe amidst a frightening world of secrets.
