Ever woken up beside a stranger? What if it was planned that way? shameless hussy presents the acclaimed one-woman, 16 character, theatrical tour de force DISSOLVE by Meghan Gardiner. At turns hilarious and heartbreaking, this play follows a young girl on a night out and the people she encounters. Starring Jessie Richardson Award-winning actress, Emmelia Gordon, DISSOLVE is designed to provoke thought and dialogue about sexual consent and challenges us to change our beliefs and behaviour surrounding alcohol, drugs and sexual assault.

"Sharp, funny, very contemporary - the actress is a shape-shifter extra-ordinaire!" - Elizabeth Paterson, Review Vancouver
