Writer/producer Christina Saliba is thrilled to be invited to OFF-JFL and Montréal Pride Festival with her hit horror-comedy, Lesbian Speed Date From Hell! The show is back again after its sold out run at horror theatre festival, Festival De La Bête Noire, in this remounted, revamped version; more terror, more gore, and more terrible lesbian puns! The play is a unique piece that evolved out of a need to see more female, gay and persons of colour represented in the arts and to provide a platform for an under-represented genre of theatre. This frightening joy ride is written by emerging, queer talent Christina Saliba, Lorna Kidjo and Adam Kolodny, and directed by tour-de-force Mariah Inger. Lesbian Speed Date From Hell! will be featured at OFF-JFL on July 19 & and 20 at Mainline Theatre and at the Montréal Pride Festival on August 10, 11, 15 and 16 at Le Ministère. Some subject matter may be disturbing (blood, mild violence)—ages 16+ is recommended.
Lesbian Speed Date From Hell! is a campy horror-comedy romp. Although it delves into the absurd and extreme, its vivid underlying message speaks to the negative impacts of ghosting (ending a relationship by ceasing all communication) and a lack of social responsibility acutely present in today’s online dating realm. When Jackie is overcome with nesting syndrome and the lesbian urge to merge, she gives lesbian speed dating a shot. The evening takes an unexpected turn when she runs into her former online conquest, Ashley, who has a little more than closure on her mind. What follows is a mix of gore and hilarity, because what is horror without a few laughs?
The majority of the cast and crew belong to the queer community, encompassing a range of beautiful and colourful backgrounds.
