In The Small Room at the Top of the Stairs Grace finds herself irresistibly drawn to the mystery of the room her husband has forbidden her to enter. Will she let her curiosity get the best of her and encounter the secret life of the man she loves?
A thought-provoking journey, Thinking of Yu is the story of a woman who discovers herself when she becomes increasingly curious about the creative rebellion of three Chinese students who altered a portrait of Mao in Tiananmen Square. Two new plays from one of the guiding forces in Quebec theatre for the past twenty-five years.
