You are here. Deep in the Nevada desert, where a lone poplar tree stands tall, its branches laden with shoes. Alexandra, usually so sedentary, is travelling across America to stand before that tree. It bears witness to the passage of travellers, transforming their shoes into bits of eternity.

Above all, the road leads to Jack. Her grandfather, the tireless traveller, has been everywhere, except in her life. Along the way, she meets people who guide her, in the footsteps of her ancestor, on a journey of self-discovery.

You are here. Facing a man who is telling you how, one day, his 93-year-old mother gently asked for his help to end her own life. How can a son respond to such a request?

What to do? Help her, or disallow her wish to die with dignity? Who has the right to decide how and when we leave this world? Family? Society? Doctors? This poignant solo performance is a tender ode to life, love and liberty.

L’incroyable légèreté de Luc L. (The Incredible Lightness of Luc L.)

You are here. Where three guys from New-Brunswick are meeting up. They were born just kilometres away from each other: same schools, same arenas, same university, same summer job at the local Acadian tourist attraction. They came of age in this harsh environment and now, they have all become artists.

What has made them who they are? Can they overcome their differences and understand one another? In the third instalment of a series of acclaimed plays, Philippe Soldevila brushes their heartwarming portrait with deft strokes of levity, gravity and humanity. 

A Production by: Théâtre Sortie de Secours and Théâtre l’Escaouette

Gamètes (Gametes)
Presentations with SURTITLESTM
March 9th, 2018 at 2 PM and 8 PM

You are here. Where values and world views collide. Since childhood, Lou and Aude are inseparable friends. One is a civil engineer; the other, a journalist and active feminist. When Aude learns that her unborn child has Down syndrome, she rushes to Lou’s side, hoping to find comfort and support.

Over the course of a crucial evening, their beliefs will be put to the test. What is the meaning of success for women today? By turns biting and poignant, their discussion becomes a celebration of the freedom to choose and the will to live life on one’s own terms.  

A Production by: Théâtre Les Biches Pensives
