Denise Filiatraut unveiled the first full program since the start of the pandemic at the Théâtre du Rideau Vert on Tuesday. A total of five plays and a host show will be featured in the next season. A season marked, among other things, by a staging by Pierre Bernard, who will revisit the play star trails30 years later.

After the reception, September 7-10, adapted from Catherine Major’s opera byAlbertine in five times, by Michel Tremblay, the Rideau Vert will officially start its season on September 27th The son. This play by Florian Zeller, prolific French writer and director (The father) directed by René Richard Cyr and starring Vincent-Guillaume Otis. The latter is back on stage for the television adventure after a five-year hiatus district 31. Young Émile Ouellette, a graduate of the National Theater School of Canada, will play the role of his son.
The season ends with a bang in May/June 2023: the return of Pierre Bernard, who has not directed since 2012 (good people at Duceppe). “For me, it’s more of a taste for coming full circle than a comeback,” Pierre Bernard said in an interview with The press. If that happens now, it’s thanks to Denise Filiatraut’s persistence. For 10 years I said no to everything I was offered in the theater, but Denise kept coming back star trails by Cindy Lou Johnson. I finally agreed because of its persistence, but also because I still love this track so much and with the same dynamic as in 1992.
Pierre Bernard will direct Mylène Mackay and Émile Schneider. Two actors, “inspirational, whole and connected to their emotional homes, to play this fable about uprooting and wandering,” he says. “At the time, Luc Picard and Sylvie Drapeau were young artists who were fully committed to their art. I have great respect for them,” says the director and ex-director of the Théâtre de Quat’Sous.
