From the people who brought you The Duchess a.k.a. Wallis Simpson…Ruby Slippers Theatre is back, and proud to present the Vancouver Premiere of You Will Remember Me as part of our Crucial New Voices From Quebec series, in partnership with and at The Vancouver East Cultural Centre. This eloquent drama by Francois Archambault and translated by Bobby Theodore is about family and memory, a deeply personal and moving new play from one of Québec’s most compelling writers.
When the aging patriarch of a modern family, a powerfully intellectual and political force in his community, suffers from dementia, the people who love him struggle to care for him. This project furthers our mission of producing provocative works from the vanguard of the French Canadian canon, as with last year’s critically acclaimed Après Moi & The List, and deepens our relationship with Francois Archambault with whom we have worked with many times (most notably, on our multi-award winning productions of The Winners and The Leisure Society.)
The draw: Local legends Kevin McNulty and Patti Allan star and Diane Brown directs.
