Barbed Wire

January 15 @ 7:00 pm

Join creature/creature at Playwright’s Workshop Montreal for a public reading of a new translation of Les Barbelés by Annick Lefebvre by Johanna Nutter.

A strand of barbed wire has started to grow inside you. You’ve got about an hour before your lips are sewn shut. What will you say while you still have the time? What will be your last word?

“So it attacks us when we censure ourselves in front of someone else, is that it? It assaults us when we hold back our opinions? We’re condemned for this! Seriously? I blow on my wounds to help them heal.”

Creative Team:
Les Barbelés written by Annick Lefebvre
Translation by Johanna Nutter
Translation dramaturgy by Maureen Labonté
Directed by Alex Dufresne
Featuring Johanna Nutter

Reference to racist motivated rape, strong language and violent imagery.

This is a FREE event. Donations are welcome at the door.
