Virtual Staged Reading of Unidentified Human Remains and the True Nature of Love
As part of their Pride in Place Series, Pride Films and Plays cordially invites you to their virtual staged reading of Unidentified Human Remains and the True Nature of Love by Brad Fraser. Directed by Jake Van Hoorn, this reading will be broadcast from Pride’s Zoom on July 1st at 7 PM.
Shocking when it first premiered in 1989, this Canadian work follows the lives of several sexually frustrated “thirty-somethings” and one teenager who try to learn the meaning of love — during a time in which a serial killer is terrorizing the city. Candy is a heterosexual woman trying to meet the perfect man but who along the way finds herself experimenting with lesbianism; her gay roommate David no longer believes that love exists; Kane is a sexually confused teenager who idolizes David; Bernie is David’s troubled best friend; Jerri is a lesbian who falls in love with Candy; and Robert is a bartender who also falls in love with Candy. Overlooking the proceedings is the otherworldly Benita, a sex worker with psychic abilities. As relevant today as it was in 1989, Fraser’s drama still carries a punch.
Starring Emma Cox as Candy, Andrew Jon Rhodenbaugh as David, Skyler McNeely as Bernie, Andy Schoepke as Kane, Autumn Vandeven as Jerri, Chip Joyce as Robert, Pauline Parkhurst as Benita, and Rebecca Carver as Evelyn.
Suggested for mature audiences.
