“I never thought you’d have to rely on me.”

Award-winners Chris Bullough, Kevin Corey and Maralyn Ryan team up with celebrated director Marianne Copithorne for the World Premiere of Choke, a humorous and heartfelt story of family love and loyalty amidst chaos and confusion.

Catherine’s adult, videogame junkie sons won’t leave home, and she couldn’t be happier. But when the single mom suffers a debilitating stroke, the tables are turned, forcing her sons to grow up fast. Sibling rivalry explodes as the pair struggles to stay as devoted to their mother as she was to them.
