MIRANDA & DAVE BEGIN AGAIN
MIRANDA ET DAVE RECOMMENCENT ENCORE (trad. Éric Nöel)


Synopsis

Miranda is grieving something unspeakable and it’s manifesting in curation of a used underwear archive. Her boyfriend Dave is stalking women - but only experimentally. Her 16-year-old sister, Eden, is on the run after a broom-closet blow-job goes awry. Is this the end or just the beginning?

Miranda fait le deuil d’une chose innommable qui se manifeste par l’organisation méticuleuse d’une archive de culottes sales. Son chum Dave traque des femmes dans la rue – mais juste expérimentalement. Sa petite sœur Eden, 16 ans, est en fugue après une fellation dans un placard à balais qui a mal tourné. Est-ce que c’est la fin ou simplement le commencement?

60 minutes, no intermission.
3 actors, one cis man, two cis women.

Rhiannon Collett, Leila Thibeault-Louchem, Florence Blain Mbaye and Guillaume Laurin, by David Ospina.
