In twenty-four absurd, lyrical, and louche episodes, “Iris Smyles” weaves a modern odyssey of trying to find one’s home in the world amid the pitfalls and insidious traps of adult life. DATING TIPS FOR THE UNEMPLOYED is a wistful if wry ode to that awkward age --- between birth and death --- when you think you know what you want but aren’t quite sure what you’re doing.
