About the Play:

Remember Me (English-language version of Les anciennes odeurs) is a play by Michel Tremblay. A young actor, whose father is dying of a terminal illness, visits his former lover. The attendant crisis prompts them to examine and come to terms with their love, both past and present.

It has been some time since Luc, a 32-year-old actor and Jean-Marc, a 38-year-old French teacher, have seen each other, but the wounds from their 7-year love affair are only partially healed. Each of them has current worries as well: Jean-Marc, apparently secure and well off, is tired of the endless procession of insensitive and seductive students; he has also realized that he will never be the great novelist he had hoped to become. He feels, in a word, mediocre. Luc, after years as an obscure stage actor, has found popular success playing “a nut case with a lisp” on a TV sitcom, but along with fame has come an unexpected and unwelcome loss of privacy and a struggle for self-respect. To make matters worse, Luc's father is dying.

During this evening at Jean-Marc’s house, the two men dredge up the good and the bad memories; they confront each other about past injustices; they examine each other’s grey hairs; finally, they confess their fears and disillusionments and they comfort each other.

Cast: 2 men.
