Created and produced by Tiny Bear Jaws.
Written and performed by Elena Belyea.
Directed and dramaturged by Emma Tibaldo.

Non-binary computer programmer Basil (they/them) wakes one morning to discover they are alone. They spend the next three years searching for others and build Orchid, a digital assistant, for company, until one day, when Basil meets a companion who leaves suddenly and without warning. Reeling from this loss, Basil attempts to write and record a musical that will serve as an archive of their life after they’re gone. Using live music, dance, and video, I Don’t Even Miss You is multidisciplinary exploration of love and legacy that asks how gender, identity, and friendship can exist with no one to perceive them.

“Haunting, heartfelt, and laugh-out-loud funny … Combined with Belyea’s moving script and poignant performance, I Don’t Even Miss You is a moving piece of theatre that lingers with you long after its unconventional conclusion.”
-Sarah Dussome, BroadwayWorld Edmonton
