Baby-Sitter

Presented by: MIFO

Thursday, April 26, 2018 at 8 pm

Cédric loses his job after making a sexist joke that goes viral online. This is the setting for Baby-sitter, a scathing comedy that thrusts us into the heart of the question of feminism and the confusion around it. Baby-sitter is a play that is at once irreverent, funny and destabilizing.

After Cédric’s gaffe, which causes him to lose his job at Hydro-Québec, Nadine, his girlfriend, wants him to apologize immediately so that he can move on. But Cédric’s brother, Jean-Michel, a star reporter, believes that this event must not be trivialised and that this slip-up is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to his brother’s misogyny. Jean-Michel invites Cédric to face the problem head-on by looking inward. Together they will write a book entitled Sexist Story in an effort to do away with male chauvinism. Nadine, however, who has had enough of her boyfriend’s introspection, and who has no dream or drive of her own, allows herself to become caught up in the mysterious baby-sitter’s surprizing games. Will Nadine be able to bring a sense of balance back into her home or will she cause the couple to grow further apart?
