The Guid Sisters
From the original French Québécois Les Belles-Soeurs by Michel Tremblay
Translated by Bill Findlay and Martin Bowman
Directed by Serge Denoncourt
Germaine Lauzon wins a million Green Shield stamps. Germaine is in for a windfall but the only way she can collect the money is to stick each stamp into a book. Calling upon her family, friends and neighbours to help, the play listens in as this formidable group of women talk about life, the world and the men in their lives.
This “rich, raucous and gritty” Scots version by Bill Findlay of Québécois writer Michel Tremblay's play Les Belles -soeurs was premiered at the Tron Theatre, Glasgow in 1989. Following recent successes with 27 and Dunsinane, two major Scottish producing companies join forces to present a Scots classic.
Directed by Serge Denoncourt, who is one of Canada’s leading directors with over 80 productions to his credit including his work with Cirque du Soleil.
Running time: Approximately 2 hours and 35 minutes including a 20 minute interval.
Presented as part of Luminate, Scotland’s creative ageing festival.
