A message from the Artistic Director


Hi! 2018 is starting off with a tour of our 2016 play Me and You. We will be at the following venues : on 27 February at Pierrefonds-Roxboro; on 13 March at Saint-Laurent; on 13 April at Montreal-North; and on 20 April at Notre-Dame-de-Grâce.

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

See our tour calendar for more details.


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.

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

📅 Here's a little #throwback to our first read-through of Talia Hallmona & Pascal Brullemans's play back in Spring 2016. ME AND YOU is/was a team/family effort, that involved a translator (Alison Bowie), a director (Arianna Bardesono), a dramaturg (Ülfet Sevdi), a translation dramaturg (Louis Patrick Leroux), and a large design team, working on set design (Lyne Paquette), costume design(Lanyi Fruzsina) , lighting design (David-Alexandre Chabot), sound design (Jesse Ash), a composer (Jesse Ash) and to make things run smoothly a stage manager (Emlyn Van) and technical director (Liam Lett). Oh and actors, in this case Kathleen Stavert (as Julie) and Mireille Tawfik as Talia (taking over Mirian Katrib who was with us in 2016) All photos by Louise Verdone
