Published in 1984, just a year after the novelist’s death, Gabrielle Roy’s autobiography has touched tens of thousands of readers. To illuminate Roy’s profoundly human writing, Marie-Thérèse Fortin and Olivier Kemeid have created a theatrical montage of her memories told in the first person, intimate and emotional, in which the actor, alone on stage, recreates a whole life.
