Presenting… I’M NOT HERE
Winner of Playwrights’ Workshop Montréal‘s 2013 Cole Foundation Translation Competition.
Ariana, a pleasant young woman, tells us the story of her life in a torrent of words, describing a daily existence that’s unravelling, sinking and slipping inevitably towards the brutal and unpredictable unknown. Between her boss’ cupcake schedule and the distractions of her life as an urban singleton, Ariana loses her way and breaks down: a total implosion. Nothing’s ever over because nothing ever starts.
