March 17 – March 18


Théâtre du Nouvel-Ontario is a francophone theatre production company. All of our productions are presented in French, however, some shows feature English Surtitles™ so that more people can experience French theatre! We apologize, but not all content on this site is available in English.


Alone on stage, a woman tells the story of waiting to be transferred to a retirement home with her husband, whose health is failing. The arrival of a drug addict mysteriously lurking on her stoop highlights her vulnerability, but also her solitude in the face of invasions of her private life and the administrative challenges of the health care system. With humour, rage and determination, she refuses to let age, circumstances or the system destroy her dignity and the love she has for her husband.

Location: Grande Salle, Place des Arts
Duration: 1:30, no intermission

English Surtitles will be presented on Saturday, March 18th at 2:30 p.m.
