Mimi

Elvis, 52 years old, mopes around his dingy old apartment, rolling his own cigarettes, and hoping for the courage to invite his neighbour over, one day, to share a slice of pizza.  Meanwhile, fortunately, there is Mimi, the imaginary woman he has dreamed up to escape the banality of his existence.

Together, they plot to make Elvis an instant TV star by beating the Guinness world record for eating popcorn. Expect excess… and maybe even a love story. One thing’s for sure: not everyone will get out of this apartment alive.

Mimi, a site-specific play for three unique actors and an adventurous audience.
