LEAVE A MESSAGE (APRÈS LE BIP)
BY AISLINN CORNETT AND GENEVIÈVE DOYON OF OPEN PIT COLLECTIVE
NAKAI THEATRE WORKSHOP PRODUCTION

Leave a Message (après le bip) tells the story of Claire’s final journey.  Her inability to connect in a setting that numbs her leads Claire on a constant quest for more.  As loneliness becomes her country and her fascination with death deepens, Claire grows deaf to voices that care and travels North for one last adventure.  Way up there, the unexpected happens.
In their first play, Open Pit writers Aislinn Cornett and Geneviève Doyon create a world in which boundaries blur.  They stand on the edge of reality, language, desolation, love and humour to break conventions and remind us that there is beauty everywhere, even in death.
