We are so grateful to Montreal Arts Council on Tour for this opportunity.

V+F Poster 11x17 MF-smallIn Vic and Flo, Victoria is forty-six and on parole after serving most of a life-sentence for murder. She’s in love with Flo, a younger ex-con who comes to stay with her in her uncle's sugar shack located in the densely forested boondocks of Quebec. But these ex-con lesbian lovers begin to feel under siege from Vic's nosy parole officer and a mysterious woman from the woods who casts an increasingly menacing shadow from Flo's past. As Vic and Flo hurtle toward their fates the buccolic narrative tapestry slowly unravels before being violently torn to shreds.

"This sensitive interpretation of uprooting is amplified by the staging, as sleek as poetic." - Alice Caron / patwhite.com

“Me and You” pulls at the heartstrings in playing themes of belonging, acceptance, and connection." - Camila Fitzgibbon / Montreal Theatre Hub

"Sincere acting, original and minimalist usage of space, props and costumes ..." - Edit Jakab /@CultMTL

"....a story of initiation or even a autofiction deeply sensitive and the reality of a growing number of "new" Quebec. - Charlotte Mercille / Bible urbaine
