Les Belles-Sœurs Theatre Production: Back in the Limelight
The year 2018 commemorates the 50th anniversary of Michel Tremblay’s seminal play, Les Belles-Sœurs. To mark the occasion, the famous show hits the road as a musical this summer. Le Groupe Maurice, partner sponsor of this new theatre production, is proud to be associated with this local classic.
The iconic Quebec play Les Belles-Sœurs, written by Michel Tremblay, was shown for the first time on August 28, 1968, at the Théâtre du Rideau Vert in Montréal. Fifty years later, the acclaimed comedy drama is back with more than 50 shows in seven Quebec cities. Directed by René Richard Cyr and with music by Daniel Bélanger, the production features Maude Guérin as Germaine Lauzon, Sonia Vachon as Rose Ouimet, and Éveline Gélinas as Pierrette Guérin.

“Le Groupe Maurice could not miss the opportunity to pay tribute to this masterpiece which is an integral part of Quebec’s cultural history and is very much appreciated by the general public in Quebec.” — Judith Neveu, Marketing Director
That’s why Le Groupe Maurice supports this revisited production as a partner sponsor. This is a great chance to rediscover Tremblay’s famous use of joual and relive memorable moments together with family or friends.
