Gateway Theatre

For the Pleasure of Seeing Her

October 8 - 24 at the Gateway Theatre, Richmond, BC

In this funny, nostalgic and bittersweet comedy, acclaimed Quebec playwright Michel Tremblay pays homage to his mother, a remarkable and larger-than-life woman. The Narrator (Kevin Loring) flashes back to different stages in his life reflecting on stories of his feisty mother, Nana (Margo Kane) and their remarkable relationship over the years. The audience has the pleasure of watching these two discuss everything, from misguided childhood pranks to overbearing relatives to their favourite books. It’s a production that the Georgia Straight calls a “funny, affectionate, and trimphantly moving portrait of the abiding bond between mother and son.”
