Di lives with her mother Makati, her father Paclay, and the handsome Mario Morneau, her mother’s second husband. One day, this marvellous yet fragile existence is brutally upset by the arrival of Peggy Bellatus and her terrifying mining machines. The earth trembles as desires and secrets shatter. In this one-woman show, Michel Ouellette explores a playful and poetic style of writing in which characters are shaped like poems, and express themselves in lively, colourful language full of gaps and ricochets.
