  Tickets and information:


In this moving translation of Jennifer Tremblay’s play La Liste, we experience one woman’s struggle as she fights through the memories leading to her friend’s death. A woman constantly making to-do lists so as not to forget anything, she overlooks one item that leads to a tragedy. This causes her to question: “Could I have done more?” This riveting play stars France Perras, a beautiful and honest storyteller who makes even a simple to-do list sound engaging. Awarded the Governor General’s Literary Award in 2008, the jury described this play as “absolutely inspired … Jennifer Tremblay achieves the universal with economy and lucidity.”

"Under Jack Paterson's direction, France Perras is a marvel of containment, reciting household tasks with the hauteur of a beneficent queen. When she finally allows her grief some release, it's heartbreaking."

What the Press had to say:

“Poetically scripted and compellingly executed…A stunning examination of obsession and guilt, love and family, friendship and sacrifice…Evocative set design and dra­matic light­ing com­pli­ment a pow­er­ful per­for­mance by Perras.” –

“…slow burning, compelling and rich…a moving evening of theatre to ponder for days after… haunting…” –

“France Perras’ portrayal of the woman offers blunt insights that hit like a cold knife and shiver around you like the snow that falls over the woman, the closing curtain of the show.”– The Ubyssey

“…brilliant truthful acting, profound emotion and intricately detailed storytelling…” – OutTV

“The List (directed by Jack Paterson) was unbelievable. It seemed so simple to begin with…It is an honour to be in the room when an actor transcends themselves and takes you with them… I did not want to breathe too hard lest I break the moment.”– GVPTA Blog
