Daily Record review of Mahida's Extra Key To Heaven

Check out Bill Westhoven's review of "Mahida's Extra Key to Heaven" by Russell Davis in today's Daily Record.

"Mahida's Extra Key to Heaven" is the kind of play you won't want to see alone, because you'll need someone to discuss it with on the way home. That sort of entertainment is torture for some people, but for others, this food for thought will be a gourmet meal." -- Bill Westhoven, Daily Record

Thomas, a young painter, is visiting Edna, his comfortably conservative and opinionated mother in a small ocean town on an island near the Canadian border. Out walking, he discovers Mahida, an Iranian exchange student who has missed the last ferry back to the mainland. Mahida’s brother, Ramin, an Islamic fundamentalist, seems to have left her after she refused to come back to Iran with him after the death of their father, but she can’t be sure. She reluctantly agrees to stay at Edna’s house for the night. When Ramin shows up for her the next day, two extreme worlds collide thousands of miles from the center of the perceived conflict.
