In 1353 Giovanni Boccaccio wrote his classic “The Decameron” about ten young people who self-quarantine in a country villa outside Florence for two weeks while plague & death ravage Europe. To pass the time, each night they tell each other stories. 

In 2020 we create “Decamera ’20” about university students who self-quarantine in a Montreal triplex while Covid-19 brings the world (well, most of it anyway) to a standstill. To pass the time they Zoom/call/FaceTime friends & family and, once they have finished watching “the Tiger King”, re-invent old stories to amuse each other…
