About the Play:

Winner of the Dora Mavor Moore Award for Outstanding New Play, 2000

For the Pleasure of Seeing Her Again (English version of Encore une fois, si vous permettez) is a full-length drama by Michel Tremblay. In a compelling balance of humour and poignancy, Michel Tremblay offers glimpses of himself and his mother at five different stages of their lives together, culminating in his reassurance of his dying mother's concern for him immediately prior to his spectacular success.

The playwright's homage to his colourful, down to earth mother who nurtured his imagination, his reclusive reading habits and his love for the theatre and the arts, yet who did not live to witness the performance of Les Belles Soeurs — the first successful play written in joual with which Tremblay legitimized the Québécois vernacular in the arts — and the world-wide acclaim for her son's artistic genius.

For the Pleasure of Seeing Her Again was first produced in 1998 at Centaur Theatre in Montréal.

Cast: 1 woman, 1 man

"I can remember perhaps five performances in my life that have delighted me and moved me so much… The work zips along, breathing with the audience… a magnificently cathartic and beautifully staged theatrical moment." Hour (Montréal)

Cast: 16 women, 3 men
