Desiring is a risk: you can lose, or be lost. But always, in the decline as in the impulse, to experience desire is to live more intensely. Performed by the sublime Larissa Corriveau, this dramatic monologue with the feel of a radio show takes us down the winding paths of a passion that is both intoxicating and liberating.  In a radio studio, a woman is getting ready to start her show.

Desiring is a risk: you can lose, or be lost. But always, in the decline as in the impulse, to experience desire is to live more intensely. Performed by the sublime Larissa Corriveau, this dramatic monologue with the feel of a radio show takes us down the winding paths of a passion that is both intoxicating and liberating. 

In a radio studio, a woman is getting ready to start her show. Suddenly, she grabs the microphone, struggling to find the words to tell the story of her incandescent passion for a man who seems like her total opposite. Here, desire is spoken aloud: this woman may be playing with fire, but she’s also living more passionately, opening the door to a potential encounter with the self. In this masterful play by author and sociologist Marie-Laurence Rancourt, the bewitching texture of that voice and the swirl of thoughts it conveys resonate in our very bones. 

Anyone who’s ever had a platonic relationship with a radio host (Myra Cree comes to mind) will rediscover, in this intimate theatrical gem, the exhilarating state of listening to a voice that, while addressing the masses, seems secretly to be saying, “Deep down, you’re the only one I’m talking to.”
