Memory and family are central themes in this moving drama by one of Quebec’s most dynamic voices, Governor General’s Award-winning playwright, François Archambault. Translated by Bobby Theordore, this well-crafted play portrays a family whose aging patriarch – a university professor, long-time sovereigntist and intellectual force – is in the early stages of dementia. With humour, love, and compassion, each family member reacts in their own way to the challenges of creating room in their lives for his care. It is a true to life story about real people in real situations and raises broader questions of the role memory plays in all our lives.
