Albertine, in five times : a play by Michel Tremblay( )

6 editions published between 1985 and 1986 in English and French and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Téléfilm. Dans ce téléfilm, Tremblay s'intéresse à une vieille femme nommée Albertine qui, au sortir d'un long séjour à l'hôpital, se résoud à emménager en centre d'accueil, dans une petite chambre qui sera son chez-soi jusqu'à la mort. "Parce que ça va mieux, parce que je suis tranquille, parce que je vais être bien ici, même si ça sent pas bon", se dit la dâme âgée de 70 ans. "Vous êtes pas toutes des consolations, t'sais", lance une de ses personnalités passées aux autres. La dame revient sur son passé par le biais de conversations avec ces cinq autres elles du passé comme si chacune venait la hanter devant la grande maison familiale à la campagne où se hument les parfums de la vie et de l'été. Montréalaises de première génération elles ont été forcées hors de leur campagne vers une pauvreté systémique de la mondialisation. Elles sont donc cinq femmes en plus d'elle, chacune à 5 âges différents de sa vie d'adulte, jouées par 5 comédiennes et portant 5 noms différents comme si elles étaient 5 soeurs jalouses qui n'en finissent plus de vouloir s'exprimer voire s'imposer et ce, malgré le fait qu'elles ne cessent de se reprocher l'une l'autre leur beauté autant que leur laideur individuelle.--[Servicesmontreal.com].

Vigil by Morris Panych( )

5 editions published between 1995 and 1996 in English and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Vigil is about a man returning--after thirty years--to sit with a female relative on her deathbed. Kemp, the protagonist, is an extremely self-centred and shallow person who uses acid wit and seemingly callous indifference to cover up the profound discomfort he experiences upon finding himself part of a death watch. Kemp's problem is: she's not dying fast enough. Through Kemp's own errors and inattentiveness, the visit that he thinks will take a day or two stretches into a year, and he finds himself caring for his long-forgotten aunt Grace against his will. Gallows humour and Kemp's diatribes on humanity and mortality fuel this delightfully dark narrative, but it is Grace's economical contributions to the dialogue (she's a woman of few words) that give this play its weight and profundity. A play of mistaken identity, twisted circumstance and surprising turns, it is deliciously absurd, incredibly funny and poignantly tender. This is one Vigil worth keeping
