A comedy against the backdrop of Y2K, three young adults rush to discover their sexuality… in all their awkwardness
August 1999. The end of the world is near, and so’s the end of high school. The shadow of the Y2K bug hangs over Oli and So’s desires — also, no one’s taught them why or how to make love. And then Ben appears, this magnetic being who has so superbly entered adulthood. Identities, shift, taboos rise, and sex becomes a target to hit before the charge towards the new millennium takes everything away.
Playwright Olivier Sylvestre (La Beauté du monde, noms fictifs) surprises us with a frank and direct work, anchored in a past still burning with all its doubts. Théâtre P.A.F. and director Gabrielle Lessard (Déterrer les os, ICI) take up this intimate and agitated guide to share with us their desires and quest for sense… in every sense of the word.
Play in French, surtitled in English.
