About the Play:

Winner of The Floyd S. Chalmers Canadian Play Award, 1990.

La Maison Suspendue (English version) is a play by Michel Tremblay. A rich, emotional, sweeping drama of anger and sorrow spanning three generations.

The family house in the country is the setting for the story of Victiore and her descendants through her husband and through her true love — who also happens to be her brother. It is Victoire's anger at being forced away from the family home and her sorrow at being separated from her dreamy, impractical, fiddle playing brother that fuel the machinery of 80 years of family relationships.

In covering the hugely successful production of La Maison Suspendue (House Among the Stars) at the Traverse Theatre in Edinburgh, a Globe and Mail correspondent from Scotland reported: "There is even talk of a 'Tremblay phenomenon.' The Herald (Glasgow) describes House Among the Stars as a play 'which speaks intimately to the Scottish soul.'The Guardian has written of 'the best playwright Scotland never had'."

Cast: 3 women, 5 men and 1 male child (playing the parts of 3 eleven year old children).
