Enter to win tickets to Pourquoi tu pleures…?, a must-see Québec tragicomedy.
The death of an overbearing father, an inheritance worth more than five million dollars to be distributed “according to individual need”, and suddenly the value system of a mother and her four children is seriously put to the test. What qualifies as a “need”? An ambition, compensation, a dream… As past and present interweave, family secrets emerge.
With its sardonic humour, the hilarious comedy Pourquoi tu pleures...? marks the return of Christian Bégin to Vancouver and the company Les Éternels Pigistes. With a cast of actors at the height of their artistic powers, this production—premiered in 2016 by the Théâtre du Nouveau Monde— questions the way in which our modern society disposes of wealth.
Written by Christian Bégin and produced by the collective Les Éternels Pigistes, Pourquoi tu pleures…? Is presented by Théâtre la Seizième, February 16 -17, 2018 at Waterfront Theatre. In French with English surtitles.
Two tickets to Pourquoi tu pleures…? on Saturday, February 17 at 8 p.m. at Waterfront Theatre (1412 Cartwright Street)
