Problem Child
by George F. Walker

Denise and R.J. want their baby back. Held up in a cheap motel, they impatiently await a social worker's verdict while fending off the antics of a drunken innkeeper. With a wink to Jerry Springer, this darkly entertaining comedy exposes the human desperation behind class prejudice and questions the reach of social control.

George F. Walker is one of Canada's most prolific playwrights, and also one of the most widely produced Canadian dramatists both in Canada and internationally. His screen credits include Due South, The Newsroom and This is Wonderland. In 1997, he published a cycle of six new plays, including Problem Child, all of which take place in the same suburban motel room.
