Will You Be My Friend
May 9-20, 2018 | WED-SAT 8pm, SUN 4pm
A musical satire.
Dr. West, Pluto's leading expert on Earthian Friendiology, presents the findings from his latest experiment on Lonely Entity 1, the patient Janice Joanne Sung Hae Lee. Janice volunteered to be a part of the program because she was lonely and out of options. Mike is a charming and handsome white guy who is always looking for a way to “give back”, and so volunteers to be a part of the program and is paired with Janice despite Janice’s friend, Leila’s protestations.
The play is largely inspired by Janice’s personal experiences living in Waterloo Region. This is a satire exploring how a dominant culture can program people to erase their sense of self, their ancestors, and their identity.
