A three-time recipient of the Governor General's Lit-
erary Award, playwright Jean-Marc Dalpé is one of the
most celebrated figures in French Canadian literature.




“…the play is a miracle of spontaneity and naturalness, to the extent you
almost feel part of the family, especially when things start to turn sour.”
                                                                                                                             – Calgary Herald


“Dalpé’s play is full of rhythm and finesse. Nothing escapes the mounting
tensions, not even the humour that is present throughout.” – Radio-Canada

Par un chaud après-midi du mois d’août, en pleine vague de chaleur, Monique et son fiancé se rendent à la ferme familiale pour fêter leurs fiançailles, une
bouteille de champagne à la main. La famille de Monique, composée de quatre générations de femmes, prépare un repas spécial en leur honneur. Au début,
tout le monde échange des civilités dans la véranda familiale, mais au fur et à mesure que l’après-midi avance, on commence à voir apparaître des fissures
derrière la façade de complaisance, révélant des indiscrétions et de pénibles vérités qui mettent fin d’une manière surprenante à la réunion de famille.

                                             À l’été 1959, une ville somnolente de l’Ontario rural a été ébranlée par une tragédie qui a changé la collectivité à tout jamais et a provoqué des ondes de choc
                                             dans le monde entier. Lynne Harper, une jeune fille de 12 ans, a été retrouvée violée et étranglée à mort. Quelques jours plus tard, Steven Truscott, un adolescent
                                             de 14 ans était inculpé du meurtre. Après un procès de deux semaines devant jury, le jeune homme était déclaré coupable et condamné à mort par pendaison,
                                             ce qui faisait de lui le condamné à mort le plus jeune du Canada. Cette histoire vraie, à la fois fascinante et émouvante, est racontée à travers les yeux d’un
                                             personnage fictif nommé Sarah, une camarade de classe de Steven et Lynne, alors qu’elle est aux prises avec sa propre perte d’innocence, le chamboulement
                                             complet de son univers et sa quête personnelle de vérité et de justice. La pièce s’interroge sur la nature de la collectivité et la manière dont les bonnes personnes
                                             font de mauvais choix. Finaliste aux Prix littéraires du Gouverneur Général de 2009.
