Betwitxt and Between
by Maggie Gallant
Set on January 15, 2020, the day that New York adoptees gained the right to obtain their original birth certificate, Betwixt & Between is about the liminal space between knowing and unknowing, aka The Gap’ (no, not that one).
When Lucy trips into ‘The Gap’ she is confronted by her thirteen-year old fantasy self, Eloise, and the Caseworker assigned to help them both. When Eloise pushes too far, Lucy must grapple with who she is, who she was, and who she might have been.
