The December Man

Imago Theatre presents


Written by Colleen Murphy
Directed by Micheline Chevrier
Cast: Brian Dooley, Rosemary Dunsmore, Jeff Irving, and
Maureen Labonte
Assistant director Katey Wattam

Jean Fournier, an engineering student at École Polytechnique, escapes the 1989 Montreal Massacre where 14 young women were murdered in a violent hate crime. Jean struggles with his rage, guilt, and panic as parents, Benoît and Kathleen, navigate how to cope. Award-winning Canadian playwright Colleen Murphy takes us back in time, revealing the ripple effects of public violence and PTSD on the everyday life of a working class family, in this intimately human, political drama about courage, survival,the depths of love and the scar tissue marks of hate.

A performance, in partnership with the Dawson Peace Centre, to commemorate lives lost in the École Polytechnique shooting, and a fundraiser for Chez Doris, an organization supporting women survivors of gender-based violence.

The performance will be followed by a talkback with playwright Colleen Murphy, director Micheline Chevrier, and the cast.
Moderated by Diana Rice from the Dawson College Peace Center.

All tickets are available through a $10 donation made by via Canada Helps. All proceeds will go towards supporting Chez Doris, an organization connected to supporting women survivors of gender-based violence.
