Matt (Olivier Blais) is grieving his father's death as he tries to mend his relationship with his girlfriend Sarah (Zoë Comeau). Except he doesn't really miss his father, and he's struggling to get through to Sarah...which doesn't help when he's visited by a violin-playing stranger (Jérémie Boudreau). Nice Guy/Gentil is a bilingual show, with showtimes both in French and English. It is a satire/drama that explores the perverse effects of domestic abuse, toxic masculinity and misogyny.

Gentil/Nice Guy est une pièce de thétre bilingue avec des performances en français et en anglais. C'est un drame satirique qui explore les effets pervers de la violence domestique, la masculinité toxique et la misogynie.
