La Chapelle presents Marcel Dubé’s “Les beaux dimanches” Dec. 6-15


In Les beaux dimanches, Québec playwright Marcel Dubé paints a portrait of society in the generation of the ensemble actors’ grandparents. It’s the story of the morning after a party in a well-to-do Montreal suburb one fine Sunday in 1965. While the play seems to merely show how a group of jaded couples spend their afternoon, it’s actually Dubé’s microcosm of an unanchored society, where hopeless people have given up changing the world in favour of just killing time.

 « Lapointe, lui, prouve une nouvelle fois qu’il a sa place parmi les voix singulières du théâtre mondial actuel et qu’il était plus que temps qu’il obtienne les moyens de ses ambitions. » – Josianne Desloges, Revue JEU

Quatorze 18 is a theatre ensemble made up of 11 actor/co-creators from the 2018 graduating class of the National Theatre School of Canada’s French stream. The troupe is motivated by a dual desire to create contemporary work and rework classics from the Québécois repertoire.
