Molière in the new TNM

The management of the TNM very much hopes that the work on the expansion of the theater will be completed in January 2024. The company will open the new year with Le misanthrope. This masterpiece by Molière is staged by the brilliant Florent Siaud in “a very contemporary and urban reading”. With Francis Ducharme in the role of Alceste, Alex Bergeron, Alice Pascual, Évelyne Rompré, Dany Boudreault… The production will then go on tour in Quebec in March 2024.

From March 19 to April 13, actor Marc Messier will defend the moving role of a man with a loss of autonomy in Le père by Florian Zeller on the TNM stage. Edith Patenaude stages this “great text”, a “tragic farce” about our relationship to old age and our denial of death. Actress Catherine Trudeau will play Messier as Anne.

The season concludes in May with Lysis, a creation by Fanny Britt and Alexia Bürger, which has been postponed twice due to the pandemic. Lorraine Pintal conducted 17 actors there, including Bénédicte Décary, Steve Gagnon, Cynthia Wu-Maheux, Brigitte Paquette, Isabelle Vincent, Olivia Palacci…
