La détresse et l’enchantement

April 17 to 19, 2020

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.

Text by Gabrielle Roy

Staged by Marie-Thérèse Fortin and Olivier Kemeid

Produced by Quebec’s Trois Tristes Tigres

Duration approximately 1h35 without intermission

Presented in Pauline-Boutal Hall at the CCFM. No subtitled service will be offered.
