An intense and spellbinding Chekhovian psychological drama set in a forest, about an isolated community of savage women and child–men, all burning with the desire to shake things up. A fertile exploration of the storms and upheavals of life.

By a lake deep in the forest, eight people struggle to find meaning in their suffocating lives: Élie, Emma, Thomas, Louise, Adèle, Christian, Léon, Martin. As an antidote to boredom and a cry for help, they surrender to Steve Gagnon’s raw, immediate dialogue to express a rage that seems limitless. On an incredible watery set, this intrigue of desperation unfolds like a choral saga, directed by the playwright and performed by a cast of wholly committed actors.

“Marie Renée Bourget Harvey’s set is a marvel. We are literally at the edge of a lake: we hear the waves lapping and rustling, and we experience that comforting sense of infinity that you sometimes get sitting on the shore, just watching the world go by.”
Marie-Claire Girard, Le Huffington Post
