About Lesson in Forgetting:

LESSON IN FORGETTING, by Emma Haché, translated by Taliesin McEnaney and John Van Burek: This is a new play from Acadia, by a very talented young playwright who has yet to be discovered in English Canada. In fact, she is only beginning to make her mark in Québec. Exercise in Forgetting is a delicate, poetic play about the agonising tension between love and the loss of memory. Some years ago, HE had a dreadful accident and since then, the only thing he can remember is how much he loves his wife. SHE, unable to break free from such a love, and despite her efforts to renew her life, remains in this limbo of devotion. Floating over the fragments of their life together is a cloud of mystery: who was the unknown woman beside him in the car and who died in the crash? This is an elegant, very moving story that asks: what are the limits of love and when there is nothing else left, can it in fact suffice?

Limited tickets are available FREE of CHARGE for the staged readings, which will all take place at Dancemakers Centre for Creation, Theatre Studio 313, Toronto, ON M5A 3C4, in Toronto’s Distillery District.
