BRAVE NEW LOOKS
Infinithéâtre presents a new play by Michaela Di Cesare
We’ve all heard beauty is in the eye of the beholder. What if your reality show-winning beauty – your one-way ticket out of St-Leonard – was suddenly in the hands of the nerd you bullied in high school? This is the situation recently disfigured (and formerly beautiful) Lara finds herself in when prodigious surgeon Sam Gagliardi is the only person who might be able to save her face.
Dates: November 30 – December 9

CENTAUR EN FRANÇAIS
For the first time in our history, Centaur Theatre has been invited to present a French-language version of one of our shows! Last season’s moving elegy for the planet A Play for the Living in a Time of Extinction by Miranda Rose Hall has been invited to open the 2023/24 season at Théâtre La Licorne as Une pièce pour les vivant·e·x·s en temps d’extinction, translated by Sarah Jane Moloney. Directed again by Rose Plotek, the show will feature Francophone actress Fabiola Nyrva Aladin. This is a major step in our ongoing effort to build bridges with the French theatre community.
Dates: September 18 – October 6
