Montréal, Canada

2013 and 2014 marked the 45th anniversary of the first performance of the play Les Belles-sœurs (1968) and the 30th of Albertine en cinq temps (1984), the 40th anniversary of the plays Hosanna and La duchesse de Langeais and of the novel C’ta ton tour Laura Cadieux (1973) and above all, it marks the 35th anniversary of the publication of La grosse femme d’à côté est enceinte (1978), the first of the Chroniques du Plateau-Mont-Royal, a series of popular works of fiction. It was therefore inconceivable to overlook this opportunity to pay tribute to novelist and playwright, Michel Tremblay. Directly inspired by his body of work, the mural celebrates Tremblay’s invaluable contribution to Quebec literature as well as the quintessential Montreal borough on which he shines a spotlight: the Plateau Mont-Royal.
