Together with oneself

This event has passed
  • Featuring Haley McGee
  • French translation by Marie-Claire Marcotte
  • Directed by David Granger
  • Dramaturgy Marie-Eve Gagnon

Meet Mission Bird, an insatiably curious, socially awkward young woman. Spattered with blood, she wields her suitcase like a shield, a weapon, a platform from which to argue her case. In her search to discover the circumstances surrounding the death of her mother, Irma "Mission Bird" starts down a path that leads her from the laundromat to a man’s apartment, where she meets a dog, a very fat dog, also called… Irma.

This black comedy raises the question, “When you do something irreversible, is love still unconditional?”

Marie-Claire Marcotte delivers an astonishing performance in this one-woman show from La Troupe du Jour. The play brings us back to the basic principles of theatre: an actress on stage and the sheer joy of words.

Duration

Performance is approximately 1 hour with no intermission.
