St. Augustin de Desmaures: "Le Désir," directed by Jean-Luc Rivard

From Eventbrite:
Le Désir , une comédie de l’auteur québécois Michel Marc Bouchard .

Sous la direction de Jean-Luc Rivard mettant en scène Brigitte Lepage , Fanny Truchon , Tanya Rancourt , Vincent Bédard , Jean-Philippe Delage et Bernard Guay .

Le « désir » , sous-entendu dans son acception d'attirance pour une autre personne , est un puissant moteur de l'espèce humaine qui accélère le pouls et active la circulation sanguine.

Sous la plume aiguisée de Michel Marc Bouchard, voilà que le désir devient en outre un instrument qui chatouille la rate et actionne les mécanismes du rire .

DATES DES 4 REPRÉSENTATIONS:
- Vendredi 18 mai 2018 à 20 h.
- Samedi 19 mai 2018 à 20 h.
- Vendredi 25 mai 2018 à 20 h.
