About This Show

Normand Chaurette’s La Société de Métis, starring Guy Mignault, is a poetic and remarkably dramatic play which takes us to Métis-sur-Mer, a small community on the south shore of the lower Saint Lawrence River. Zoé, a wealthy heiress, reigns on Métis and its gardens, surrounded by guests whose friendship she buys with lavish gifts. On a beautiful summer day, she catches sight of a painter at work on portraits of her and her guests. From then on, Zoé becomes obsessed with one thing: possessing the portraits. But the painter will not sell them. Money, flattery, manipulation, threats, nothing seems to work. Nothing?

Normand Chaurette is one of the only Canadian writers to have a play staged at la Comédie Française.
