TRILOGY OF AN EMIGRATION

Tales of the Moon | Tales of the Snow | Tales of the Sun

By Philippe Soldevila | Translated by Leanna Brodie

 

Sunday, March 14, 2021 | 12 pm Pacific / 3 pm Eastern / 8 pm GMT

TALES OF THE MOON

By Philippe Soldevila | Translated by Leanna Brodie
Inspired & adapted from shorts stories by Pere Calders
Translated from Conte de la lune (Quebec, Canada)

“…the clear skies of hope, and poetry able to chase away the darkest clouds and the deepest suffering…a celebration of beauty.” – Le Soleil

Nothing is impossible when you believe in your dreams, you can even go to the moon. A diary in an abandoned suitcase carries us back to the 1940s, to a little Catalan village in the heart of Spain. Joan is ten years old. The war that has torn his country apart is finally over, and after an absence of five years, his father at last returns home. Joan’s wild imagination helps him to survive a father imprisoned by Franco’s fascists, the disappearance of his dog – and the fact that he’s rotten at math! Years later, his diary tells of the Spanish Moon, of lemon trees, and of long forgotten days.

Featuring Carmen Aguirre, Anthony Santiago, Micheal Scholar, JR, and Sabrina Vellani

TALES OF THE SNOW

By Philippe Soldevila | Translated by Leanna Brodie
Translated from Conte de la neige (Quebec, Canada)

“A moving play on family, separation and resilience.”
– ICI Radio-Canada

Nothing is more natural for a 10 year old boy born in Quebec in the early 1970s to dream of skating like Guy Lafleur. And our young hero is no exception to this rule. Except that, for more great and only woe, his name is Octavio Casesnoves-Ruiz. For Octavio, this difference is a weight that he refuses to bear. The old stories and values of his Spanish father, a victim of the Spanish cvil war, are of no interest to him until his grandmother gives him a pathway to understanding.

Featuring Ming Hudson, Lucia Frangione & Michael Scholar, Jr.

TALES OF THE SUN

By Philippe Soldevila | Translated by Leanna Brodie
Translated from Conte du soleil (Quebec, Canada)

“…a brilliant conclution to his trilogy on emigration, identity and resilience…
as humerous as it is moving…”

– MonThéâtre.qc.ca

Étienne, 10, and Octavio, his father, have isolated themselves from each oher. Étienne prefers his screens, his father takes refuge in his work. Exploring Etienne’s Spanish great-grandmother’s childhood, in the land of the Sun, these two may yet find a way back to each other and connect the worlds of multiple generations. The last chapter of a generational and deeply personal trilogy on the immigrant journey.

Featuring Rick Dobran, Allegra Fulton & Julie Leung
