Albertine, in Five Times: A Play
In one of his most daring theatrical achievements, Michel Tremblay presents the story of one woman, Albertine, at five different times in her life. The older Albertines warn the younger ones of what is to come--"We all depend on you,” Albertine at 70 says to Albertine at 30--and the younger Albertines are passionate and full of explanations. Together, the five Albertines provide a moving portrait of an extraordinary "ordinary” woman in this Chalmers Award-winning play.
Cast of 6 women.
