This November, Theatre Wakefield is very excited to present the bilingual play BALCONVILLE written by David Fennario, directed by Claude Laroche and performed by the Wakefield Players. The story takes place in the late 70’s in Pointe-Saint-Charles, one of Canada’s first industrial slums in Montreal. The Expos are winning and the factories are closing down. It is election time and the local candidate is roaming the streets making the same old promises. As a result, the English and the French speaking working class join forces in order to take on the “Establishment”.
Performance dates are November 21, 22, 28 and 29, 2014, 8 p.m. with a matinee on November 29 at 2 p.m. at the Wakefield La Pêche Community Centre, 38 Valley Drive (Wakefield) Québec.
Tickets are $20 for evening performances and $16 for the matinee and are available at the Box Office, at Boutique Jamboree, 740 Riverside Road (Wakefield), at La Fab, 212 Old Chelsea Road (Chelsea) and at the door.
