We are OBSESSED with the new Toronto-based web series Miss Misery. Created by Jade Blair and Stephen Thomas, the show mines the depths of our modern relationship dilemmas—from the foibles of online dating to the thornier aspects of polyamory. Set in Toronto (look for Trinity Bellwoods Park and local bars & stores), the show is very much inspired by the current dating climate.
Miss Misery introduces us to Amy, an anxious, aimless millennial; her best friend Lee, a perennially single sellout; and Jay, Amy’s boyfriend, a failing academic. All privileged underachievers, all being forced to make the first real decisions of their lives. We follow them as they use the unlimited possibilities of modern dating—dating apps, poly options, open marriages—to hide from their real problems.
Miss Misery will make you recognize aspects of yourself (and your friends). It’s also VERY funny. The series exclusive is coming to The Royal (608 College St) on Wednesday, August 14. We want you to see it on the big screen, so we’re giving away three pairs of tickets for lucky readers. See how to enter below, and good luck!
