René-Daniel Dubois

Comedy in one long act by René-Daniel Dubois for a large cast or a solo actor. Winner of the Governor General’s Award.

The solo version premiered at Theatre la Licorne, 27 April, 1984, designed and directed by Joseph Saint-Gelais, performed by the author, subsequently revived at the Nouvelle Compagnie Théâtrale / Théâtre Denise-Pelletier, 1995.

A frenzied piece that tells of a nuclear bomb-testing, a threatened opera singer, a confused youngster, a braggart mountain climber all in one place at one time.

This is a true writer's work filled with flights of fantasy, of language, of dark humour and a kind of joyful theatricality that is utterly infectious. Dubois himself performed the work with brio and enchanted audiences and critics alike.
