November 24-27, 8pm 

Lorne Pardy Directs a Double Bill: 

Confessional by Tennessee Williams & Les Belles Soeurs by Michel Tremblay


Confessional  

By Tennessee Williams 
The scene is a rundown bar on the Southern California coast, where a group of lonely and disparate individuals, rejected by "normal" society, come together in their need for human contact and understanding. One by one each tells his tale with poetic eloquence and force, revealing the desperate emptiness of his existence, and inspiring a moving compassion of rare dimension. In the final essence, the characters become embodiments of the fears that lurk in all of us, and the frailties that so often make us less than we would wish to be-both in our hearts and in the eyes of others. 

Some strong language.
 

Les Belles Soeurs

Translated by John Van Burek & Bill Glassco 

Germaine Lauzon has won a million trading stamps from a department store. Her head swimming with dreams of refurbishing and redecorating her working-class home from top to bottom with catalogue selections ranging from new kitchen appliances to “real Chinese paintings on velvet,” she invites fourteen of her friends and relatives in the neighbourhood over to help her paste the stamps into booklets.


Raucous, reckless and rude, the women shamelessly share their most secret hopes and fears, complain stridently about their friends and relatives, fantasize wistfully about escaping the misogynist drudgery of their lives and surreptitiously tuck most of the stamps into their purses and clothing, self-righteously appropriating what they consider to be Germaine’s “illegitimate” good fortune.


Strong language. Some strong themes are discussed in this play including abortion.
