You Will Remember Me is the compassionately told story of an aging intellectual beset with dementia, whose family splinters in their efforts to support him. As he is shuffled between frustrated caregivers, the resilient patriarch begins to reflect on how each of them will remember him after he passes away. Peppered with bittersweet humour, this is a deeply personal and moving new play by François Archambault, one of Québec’s most compelling writers.

There's a kind of genius in You Will Remember Me. Director Diane Brown and her team do an excellent job with this script.”—Colin Thomas, THE GEORGIA STRAIGHT
