The Millennial Malcontent
Moxy is married and seething, fed up with the constraints of domesticity, and longing for some action. Meanwhile, her long-suffering husband Johnny has decided that enough is enough and contemplates having an affair with Faith, a secret admirer. Add to the mix a vain YouTube Star, his Québécois cousin, a lesbian party girl, a PhD student and a music blogger and the stage is set for a raucous exploration of the social posing, sexual frankness and emotional minefield of the Millennial generation.
This brand new play from Governor General’s Award-winning playwright Erin Shields is a fierce meditation on the millennial generation, loosely adapted from The Provoked Wife by Sir John Vanbrugh.
“The cast—an amazing ensemble–makes every moment a rollicking good time; a laugh-out-loud night at the theatre.” – Mooney on Theatre
“Shields puts in plenty of clever twists on her original source material; There’s lots of eye candy in this show.” – Toronto Star
“The Millennial Malcontent dares to speak to its subject faithfully, and, to paraphrase Moxy, makes a compelling case for raising the standard of what we’re able to think of as a triumph.” – The Theatre Reader
The Millennial Malcontent is approx. 2h 10m in length including one intermission.
