Performance Notes

×
In the latest of Karen Hines’ darkly hilarious comedies, we follow a tender-hearted young server on the most harrowing shift of her life. In the extraordinarily modern bistro of an all-women’s condo, our heroine contends with voracious insurance adjustors, literary plagiarists, and indomitable invertebrates. Table talk ranges from real estate to politics to the existential transcendence of lambs — but it’s only when the fuzzy ones start to speak that our hero really starts to listen.
 
Governor General nominated, powerhouse playwright of The Pochsy Plays and Crawlspace, Hines serves up a biting meditation on neo-liberalism, consumption, precarity and hope.
