Manman La Mer: a co-presentation by La Troupe du Jour and Persephone Theatre

SASKATOON – FEBRUARY 15 2022 – La Troupe du Jour and Persephone Theatre are excited to announce that they will be co-presenting Manman La Mer at the Backstage Stage from March 3 to 6. March 3-5 at 7:30pm and March 6 @ 2:00pm.

The play will be presented in French with English surtitles (English translations above the stage).

Manman La Mer tells the story of Marjolaine, gifted with the power to know the future. Encouraged by her mother, the child stifles her gift of clairvoyance. But twenty-six years later, devastated by a mysterious and incurable illness, she has no choice but to go to Haiti and rely on the good care of her grandmother, Manman La Mer… a midwife? A mystic or a simple grandmother full of love? Manman La Mer puts women and Haitian spirituality in the spotlight, and explores with humour and authenticity the themes of mother-daughter relationships while vibrating to the rhythm of traditional Haitian tales.

Written and performed by DJENNIE LAGUERRE
Directed and designed by KAMANA NTIBARIKURE
