75 years of the Théâtre du Rideau Vert

January 10th - 16th, 2024

We're celebrating 75 years of the Théâtre du Rideau Vert, the oldest professional French-language theater still operating in Quebec. Each film in this cycle is based on a play that played at the Rideau Vert and marked a key moment in its history. The Children's Hour is adapted from Lilian Hellman's Innocentes, the first play presented on its stages; James Goldman's The Lion in Winter was performed under the artistic direction of Yvette Brind'Amour, co-founder of the theater; Arthur Miller's Death of a Salesman and Alan Jay Lerner and Frederick Loewe's My Fair Lady were staged during the time of current Artistic Director Denise Filiatrault, who also starred in André Brassard's Il était une fois dans l'Est, co-written by playwright and author of Les Belles sœurs, Michel Tremblay.

Presented in collaboration with
