This beautiful script makes me cry every time I read it, and has stuck with me since my very first encounter. The Swearing Jar truly speaks to me.– Jane Loughman
Originally a theatre production, now adapted into a feature length screenplay, The Swearing Jar was selected as a finalist in the 2020 Writer’s Lab, supported by Meryl Streep, Nicole Kidman & Oprah Winfrey.
The producers are grateful for the generous development and production support of Telefilm, Ontario Creates and the Harold Greenburg Fund.
