Having had a successful run with OFF-Just for Laughs, Lesbian Speed Date From Hell! takes the stage with this queer campy horror-comedy for Fierté Montreal/Montreal Pride.
More terror, more gore, and more terrible lesbian jokes!
Lesbian Speed Date From Hell! delves into the absurdity, buffoonery and horrors of ghosting in today’s online dating realm. When Jackie is overcome with nesting syndrome and the lesbian urge to merge, she gives lesbian speed dating a shot. The evening takes an unexpected turn when she runs into her former online conquest, Ashley, who has a little more than closure on her mind.
A cross between John Waters’ Serial Mom and Stephen King’s Misery, this ridiculous, outrageous romp will remind you that this digital age is no excuse for bad behaviour!
