Miranda is a theatre professor whose life is less than satisfactory. After falling during a performance early in her acting career, she finds herself in constant, seemingly incurable pain and struggles to even sit still. One night, as she's drowning her sorrows at the local pub, her path takes a sharp turn. After drinking a glowing, golden liquid, she wakes up the next morning with no memory of the night before, and her chronic pain has lifted. But as a lover of the Bard, Miranda should know that sudden streaks of luck always come at a price. Author of "Bunny." Hometown: Montreal, QC.
