A trans person dreams of assassinating their abusive boss. Hindered by bozo co-workers and helped by a drag queen who leads the workplace union, how will Venus take down terrible leadership while also chasing the gender euphoria conjured up by her alter ego Mercury? A tasty revenge fantasy for the working class, featuring an all-queer cast from Montréal.

Sensory description

There will be gradual lighting changes and music played before, during, and after the show. There is the abrupt sound of a dismissal bell ringing. Three characters are dressed identically and have prop glasses covering their faces. Each actor plays multiple characters. There will be slapstick violence briefly in the middle and at the end.
