In 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.
A message from the Artistic Director
At a time when Quebec culture has been going through a period of outstanding success for its films (three Foreign Language Oscar nominations in the last 4 years) our current project, staging Denis Côté’s award-winning film Vic et Flo on vu un ours, seems like a natural. The translation and adaptation will be done by Michael Mackenzie—one of the most innovative and celebrated figures in Montreal theatre.
