THE REVIEWSMontreal Gazette: “A breakthrough masterpiece”
Le Devoir: «Un grand show populaire, un irrésistible party »
When a Plateau Mont-Royal housewife wins one million trading stamps from a department store, her life is turned upside down. Michel Tremblay’s landmark piece of Quebec theatre has been translated into over 25 languages and performed across the world. His timeless tale of working class struggle takes on a whole new dimension in this outrageously fun musical celebration performed in English by a stellar all-female cast.
