Based on the novel by Réjean Ducharme

Adapted and directed by Lorraine Pintal

Distribution: Benoit Landry, Sarah Laurendeau, Louise Marleau

After memorable pieces such as HA ha !…,Inès Pérée et Inat Tendu, and L’Hiver de force, Lorraine Pintal continues to explore Réjean Ducharme’s wild and poignant universe.

This time, Pintal brings to life L’Avalée des avalés, the very first novel written by the mysterious Ducharme, a novel that continues to shock Quebec literature more than 50 years after it was first published in 1966. Created with success in Avignon, then recreated in Paris in 2018, Pintal’s adaptation received glowing reviews both from critics and the public. Her vision of the novel, brought to life on-stage, pays just tribute to the late novelist and playwright.
