About the Play:

Damnée Manon, Sacrée Sandra (English version of Damnée Manon, sacrée Sandra) is a full-length drama by Michel Tremblay. Two interweaving monologues on religion and sex from characters who eventually realize that they have been "invented" by the author.

The play examines the sacred and the profane — their similarities and differences, how they can merge and become one another. The play consists of two interwoven monologues on religion and sex, spoken by Manon (from Forever Yours, Marie-Lou) and Sandra (from Hosanna). With Damnée Manon, Sacrée Sandra, Michel Tremblay announced the end of his eleven-play cycle. At the play's climax Sandra and Manon realize that they have been "invented" by the author….

In Damnée Manon, Sacrée Sandra was first produced in English in 1978 by Mount St. Vincent University in Halifax.

Cast: 1 woman, 1 man.

What people say:

"If one can judge from the superb quality and blazing intensity of the emotional outpourings in Damnée Manon, Sacrée Sandra…, then Michel Tremblay ought to perhaps reconsider his decision [to end this eleven-play cycle]. The playwright's purpose is to show there are two persons existing within a body. Good and evil, love and hate, religious and sexual ecstasies… so close as to be one and the same." — The Montréal Star

"A hauntingly powerful evening of theatre." — Vancouver Express
