The Dragonfly of Chicoutimi is one of those beautiful PuSh offerings with a ridiculously short run. It closes January 25 so book now.
Dragonfly is about Gaston Talbot who has been unable to talk since he experienced a trauma at 16. Decades later, he can finally speak—but only in English, a language he’s never learned.
Larry Tremblay wrote this play as a monologue but, in this production, director Claude Poissant reimagines the text as a choral piece for five men.
This mounting is aurally and visually superb. It’s informed by Eros and it’s very smart.
Don’t miss it.
