Ottawa: The National Arts Centre presents “Bonne retraite, Jocelyne” October 2-5
Wednesday, September 11, 2019
Retirement often prompts people to look back at the past, but in Jocelyne’s case it becomes a pretext for a flood of opinions, awkwardness and bitterness. In dialogue that alternates between banal odiousness and odious banality, Fabien Cloutier turns the microscope on a nuclear family trapped in a teeming vivarium.
A fifth play for that Quebec artist, and the first to be presented on the NAC French Theatre stage.
