We’re back live! Coming up in November, Western Gold is proud to present the English language world premier of Martin Bellemare’s The Ballad of Georges Boivin.
At 77, Georges Boivin decides to “give the dice a roll.” Georges just lost his wife, the “centre of his universe.” He’s terrified “he no longer exists for anyone.” But there is life after 70, and it must continue even after great loss. With his three friends, all of them the same age, he sets out on a road trip from Québec to Vancouver in search of his first love whom he hasn’t seen in 50 years.
Jay Brazeau and John Innes alternating as Georges Boivin in repertory
