I keep a tight list. Very detailed. I stick to it. Even more so since she died. But I’m having trouble.
Winner of a Herald Angel and Fringe First, The Listby the celebrated Québec dramatist Jennifer Tremblay is masterpiece in story telling. Stellar Quines’ production stars award winning actress Maureen Beattie (27, The Enquirer), is directed by Muriel Romanes and has a creative team that includes Scottish artist John Byrne.
Set in Québec, The List is an award winning story of a woman struggling to adjust to rural life. Increasingly isolated, she keeps life in order through obsessive list making. As her marriage struggles she befriends Caroline. When Caroline requests a favour she adds it to her list. The difference between remembering to do it, and neglecting to take it seriously, becomes the difference between life and death.
