Thanks to old friends and new friends who came out this weekend for performances of Piecework: When We Were French in St. Johnsbury, Vermont, and Turners Falls, Massachusetts, and to my hosts in both towns. Thanks also to everyone who has sent messages in the wake of those performances with their responses to the show. I’ve now had to good fortune to perform the piece for many friendly and receptive audiences, but it’s always especially gratifying to come home with the feeling that the show lives on beyond the walls of the theater, as folks return to their families and communities and feel moved to share stories and memories of their own families. I truly believe that by telling our stories, we can rediscover —and even transform— who we are.
I’ve returned home to Montreal grateful for your support and inspired. Additional performances are likely to be planned soon, so check back here for more information, or feel free to leave a comment if you would like to be added to my mailing list. Merci bien!
