Performances on June 26 & 27

Playground Productions presents 2 development performances of


June 26th and 27th, 8pm
MAI – Montréal, arts interculturels

Eva is a 20 year old trans girl who has woken up in Rio de Janeiro on the daywhen she will finally complete her transition. Eva is on a fantastical adventure in pursuit of the perfect boy and the perfect body set in an introspective wonderland. Eva grapples with her identity as she encounters ridiculous and strange characters. Whether she’s Tindering or debating with Christ, all is stumbled upon in this magically turbulent world.

The surreal style allows for deeper insight into Eva’s psyche as she explores her relationships with her family, her religion, and her sexuality. Eva is at times decisive and steadfast, but she is also unsure and vulnerable. She is trying to figure out how to define herself as she attempts to reconcile the differences between who she is and who she hopes to be.
