A young woman has disappeared at the edge of the city. Four women are drawn into the race to find her. Mentor and protégé, lovers and sisters, we move through the shattering events of their recent lives that have left them as lost as she is. Redolent with ambiguity, playing on the multiple meanings of victim, victory, and theatricality, The Vic creates an ensemble of sharply drawn women ranging in age from their teens to their fifties, each of them eager to claim the entitlement they feel their status as victim has “naturally” conferred upon them

Drawing on the cult of Rock Thériault (aka “Moses”) near Burnt River in the early 1980s, it is an unsparing, often shocking, sometimes incredibly humorous dramatization of how the status of victim has become the most powerful and effective manipulative tool for social advancement in an age where all public discourse begins and ends with the populist media motto, “if it bleeds it leads”
