Les Belles Soeurs - Spring 2017

Synopsis

Germaine Lauzon has won a million trading stamps, but there's a catch: they all need to be pasted into books in order to be redeemed. With her head spinning with schemes to redecorate her working-class home from top to bottom, Germaine invites friends, relatives, and neighbours to assist her with this gargantuan task at a stamp-pasting party.

Over the course of the evening, the party guests shamelessly share their secret hopes and fears, fantasize about escaping the drudgery of their lives... and surreptitiously tuck the stamps into their clothes and purses. By turns hilarious and poignant, Michel Tremblay's biting satire exposed uncomfortable topics in a way that still resonates today.
