Fresh on the heels of Remembrance Day, a St. Boniface theatrical institution is preparing to raise the curtain on a new production set during the Second World War.
Le Cercle Molière, now in its 88th season, will present Le Repas des fauves from Thurs., Nov. 28 to Sat., Dec. 14 at the Théâtre Cercle Molière, located at 340 Provencher Blvd.
Based on the works of Vahé Katcha and adapted by Julien Sibre, organizers say Le Repas des fauves is set in occupied France in 1942 and features seven friends who gather to celebrate a birthday. All is well until the Gestapo arrives. Two German soldiers were brutally killed just outside the apartment building and the Nazi soldiers demand two hostages in return. That’s two hostages they must select among themselves.
Directed by Roland Mahé, the show features Shane Barnabé, Lynne Connelly, Vincent Dureault, Janique Lavallée, Marco McDonald, Eric Plamondon, Patrick Trudel, and André Vrignon-Tessier.
Showtime is 8 p.m., with the exception of the following performances: Thurs., Dec. 5 (7 p.m.), Thurs., Dec 12 (7 p.m.), and Sat., Dec. 7 (2 p.m.). There are no performances on Sundays and Mondays.
