Theatre Night in Merrickville is excited to return to the stage with an award-winning play by Michel Tremblay, one of Canada’s preeminent playwrights!
“Albertine in Five Times” explores one woman’s story, at five different stages in her life. The younger Albertines are passionate and full of explanations, learning from their elders about hardships yet to come. “We all depend on you,” Albertine at 70 says to Albertine at 30. Together, the five Albertines provide a moving portrait of an extraordinary “ordinary” woman. (Canadian Playwrights)
“A remarkable play…The conception is brilliant.” – New Statesman
“The story of a life, told by Tremblay with immense compassion.” – Toronto Sun
