Albumen delves into the world of Jessa (Andrée Rainville) who works in an office and models for her former mentor, photographer Danielle (Margo MacDonald). In a ritual of sorts, Jessa gives blood every 56 days, in order to give her life meaning. At the clinic, she meets nurse and lover Lucas (Mitchel Rose). Both he and Danielle corner Jessa to reveal the things she’s running from, pushing her to her breaking point.
Albumen is a new play by award-winning local playwright Mishka Lavigne, directed by Éric Perron and presented by the TACTICS Mainstage Series.
