Marie, Eve

Director, born in Trois-Rivières, Quebec in 1937. Eve Marie was Artistic Director of the Théâtre Français d'Edmonton (now UniThéâtre). From its inception in 1967, when it produced L'Auberge des morts subites by Félix Leclerc, to its fusion with La Boîte à Popicos in 1992, this Company was a cultural mainstay of the French community in Edmonton, producing Quebec works such as Bousille et les Justes and Les Belles-soeurs, and launching two French theatre festivals in 1981 and 1982.

Raised in Quebec, Eve Marie studied at the Conservatoire de La Salle before teaching drama and directing. She won an acting award at the Dominion Drama Festival and then studied at the National Theatre School of Canada. She toured France with the Compagnie St-Etienne before working in French television in Edmonton.

She was appointed to the Théâtre Français in 1978 and while there directed L'Ouvre-boite by Jean-Louis Roux, Robert Papin and André Roy, and Michel Garneau's Sur le matelas among others.
