A message from the Artistic Director

admin-lyne-150x150I am so excited about 2016. TWO new works are being presented this coming year.  Me and You marks Talisman Theatre’s sixth commissioned translation of contemporary French plays into English and the first collaboration with translator Alison Bowie. The fall production will be Yukonstyle by Sarah Berthiaume, same author as The Flood Thereafter (2012). TWO new directors will lead these productions Arianna Bardesono and Geneviève L. Blais.

Talkback Guests for Friday, October 14

Talisman has a vibrant, living mission: to produce English-language premières of Québécois plays for Montreal's public and students.
