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.
