  • Cast and creatives
  • Venue details
Standing beside a rotating doll’s house replica of his childhood home – the block of flats at 887 Murray Avenue – Lepage opens a beguiling window to the past. Delivered in a mixture of poetry and prose, his intimate recollections of family life illuminate the struggles of Québécois society of the time while inviting us into his present-day world.

Matching ingenious storytelling with a meticulously crafted staging that plays with scale through innovative technologies, a tender one-man performance animated by a transforming set.

Ages 14+

Performed in English and French with English surtitles

Barbican [Off West End]

“Magical otherness, full of tricks that are never less than revealing and often take the breath away... Impressive... Sensational”

Sarah Crompton (What's On Stage, Guardian)

“Beguiling... Richly autobiographical.. Ingeniously crafted mixture of memoir and social commentary... An engaging performer.”

Henry Hitchings (Evening Standard)

“Beautiful solo show... Poignant... A vein of puckish humour and self-mockery... Electrifying... Recommended.”

Paul Taylor (The Independent)

“Shows that memory is a sixth sense – a richly emotional art, not a dry exercise of mental ability... Left me feeling enriched.”

Alice Saville (Time Out, Independent)

“Gentle, funny and touching... Ingenious, deftly woven one-man piece... A covetable, rotating box-of-tricks set.”

Sarah Hemming (Financial Times)
