Speak Truth of the Dead
In Speak the Truth of the Dead, storyteller Jennifer Ansell-Clark tells the tales of a few friends, enemies, family members and possible saints, as she remembers them; for both their faults and their triumphs. We all wonder about our own mortality and how the passing of those we love (or detest) will affect us. Through the stories of the departed, Jennifer faces the questions that affect us all: When we die, what will become of us, and what will be left behind?
Performances on April 11th & 12th at 8PM.
This performance is also a fundraiser and half the proceeds will be given to the Oncology Pivot Nurses Fund of the Jewish General Hospital. These wonderful nurses have been the rocks anchoring many a person's journey through battling cancer and they more than deserve our love and support.
For those who cannot attend, please consider using the PayPal link below to contribute to the fund for these wonderful nurses.

Dr. Sketchy Montréal est de retour et vous invite à sa prochaine séance de modèle vivant : « Why Don’t You Do Right ». Nous aurons le plaisir de dessiner la magnifique Coeur de Lyon qui posera pour nous en Jessica Rabbit! « Je ne suis pas mauvaise, je suis juste dessinée comme ça. »
A series of staged readings of some of the Bard's greatest plays starring up and comers and veterans of Montreal's independent theatre scene.
A young man is found near dead on a beach in 1863 Nova Scotia, missing both legs at the knee and unable to speak. For the rest of his life, Jerome is cared for by several families as his fame grows and wanes. From all over, people try to guess where the mystery man is from, but to this day he remains a true Canadian mystery. With original songs by Sarah Segal-Lazar, the play explores not only his life in NS, but several possible origins to the man known as Jerome.
