Written by Quebec’s most celebrated playwright and directed by Loyola associate theatre professor Artemis Preeshl, the play explores the emotional journey of Albertine, a war widow and mother, from age 30 to 70. While the older Albertines warn their past selves of what is to come, the younger Albertines are passionate and full of explanations. Madeline, Albertine’s sister, shares her experiences of marriage and motherhood as the two women co-create how to live and love.
Tickets are $12 for general admission and $8 for Loyola faculty, staff, students and seniors. Tickets are available online or by calling 504-865-2074. Free parking is available in the West Road Garage, accessible from St. Charles Avenue.
