About the show

Consumed by fantasies of opulent fabrics and women’s high fashion, a young man desperately tries to restore his mother’s tarnished character by designing the perfect dress for her court appearance. ­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­­Michel Marc Bouchard’s new play asks penetrating questions. Can artistic creation be healing? Can it obscure the ugliness that surrounds us or is that the source of creativity? Can we find redemption in dreams? Can art be a work of forgiveness?
