The year begins and ends with L’Homme gris.
A new theatre opens in Quebec City, and L’Homme gris is produced as its inaugural play. The place is called L’Implanthéâtre… later rechristened Le Périscope.
(Coincidence or serendipity? The theatre is located right across the street from where I used to live for 10 years, on Lockwell Street in Quebec City. Even more amazing: my mother lived on this very street before she married my father!)
This production of L’Homme gris was the same as the one in Montreal, except for the role of the father, played here by Marc Legault.
In June, Amore Amore, a collaborative creation, is produced at the Nouveau Théâtre Expérimental in Montreal. A tasty bit of Italian zaniness.
Starring Robert Gravel, Anne-Marie Provencher, Paul Savoie, Sylvie Potvin, Robert Claing and Claude Laroche
Paul or Robert Gravel? Can’t tell…

I write the play Night Cap Bar, a crime story, as well as a short piece for the 20th anniversary of the Centre d’essai des auteurs dramatiques, titled Le Cadeau.
In November, Jean-Marie Lemieux dies. He left us way too soon.

With a “rug” on his head. Made us laugh so hard!
The place was sold out.

I even kept the ticket stub!
As for the program? Lost it!
In Swedish… Incredible finale, and the staging was brilliant and so refined. So powerful – an outstanding theatre experience.
23 years later, I still remember how that final image gave me goosebumps!
