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.
