“The partners know that the confrontation in which they are engaged, and which will not separate them, is as inconsequential as a perverse form of pleasure.” Roland Barthes, Fragments d’un discours amoureux

The bedroom as battleground

She’s a writer and occasional drama queen; he’s a PhD student in philosophy and a Timbits fan. They spent their twenties together. Alternating between passionate interludes and quarrels and infidelities, they’ve ended up in an ambiguous relationship that makes neither of them happy. Little by little, words have replaced bodies, and language has replaced the double bed as the preferred place for a little romp. But tonight, their rhetorical jousting will take them to the limits of the field of love ...

Playwright Catherine Chabot combines seriousness and humour in an incisive look at the peregrinations of the bedroom. A hyperrealist score for three actors, in language that is as raw as it is relevant.

Performance is approximately 1 hour and 15 minutes with no intermission.
