QUEBEC AND THE THEATER
6pm – Amphithéâtre, One Monte-Carlo
First performed in Quebec in 1968 and since given in over 30 languages, Les Belles-sœurs, by Montrealer Michel Trembley, is a cult work in French-language theater. The story concerns a housewife, in Montreal’s Plateau Mont-Royal district, whose life is turned upside down when she wins a million trading stamps. She invites her sisters and neighbors to a stamp-sticking night – all set to music!
