Le Club des éphémères (2019-2020 and 2021-2022)

In-house production

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.


Five residents in a retirement home are being interviewed for a documentary on the dreadful swarms of Lake Nipissing shadflies ― called éphémères in French ― that engulf North Bay every summer. These ladies find the request disappointing. They would much rather discuss a topic dear to their hearts: the Dionne quintuplets. Gamely, they share their memories for the camera, but in so doing, each of them ends up revealing a sordid page of her past. Tender, yet stinging, this dramatic comedy reminds us that life is… ephemeral.

Location: Salle Trisac, Collège Boréal

LENGTH: 1 hour 25 min.
