Company in Montreal, Quebec, founded in 1978 by Claude Poissant, René Richard Cyr, and Marie-France Bruyère. In 1998, Poissant assumed artistic directorship, and the company's name was changed to PàP.
Initially PàP presented an eclectic mix of new works aimed at adult and adolescent audiences. Its most famous work is probably Michel Marc Bouchard's Les Feluettes/Lilies. It has also presented Poissant's Si tu meurt, je te tue, Roger Gaudet's À tout hasard, and Cul sec by François Archambault. In 1998, PàP celebrated its 20th anniversary with an omnibus work called Huit péchés capitaux , bringing together eight well-known Quebec playwrights including Michel Tremblay and Michel Marc Bouchard. In February 1999, it presented Couteau: sept façons originales de tuer quelqu'un avec... by Isabelle Hubert, and in October 1999, it produced Geneviève Billette's Crime contre l'Humanité.
For the 2010/2011 season, PàP featured two plays by Larry Tremblay: Abraham Lincoln va au théâtre and Dragonfly de Chicoutimi.
