If you dismantle the scaffolding that obscures/cocoons your life — the superstructures of family, career, stereotype and ambition — what is left standing? This question is at the heart of Celles d’en haut (Women on Top). Inspired by sources as varied as Dante’s Inferno, Mann’s The Magic Mountain and film stills by Cindy Sherman, this new play from lauded Quebecois playwright Olivier Kemeid is set in a ’50s establishment, set apart on an isolated mountaintop. Both perceptive and hilarious, the play celebrates women of all ages and the dynamics of their relationships with each other and the world around them. In collaboration with artists from Brussels, Montreal, Atlanta and Chicago, Théâtre du Rêve and 7 Stages present this powerful work in both English and French.

Tickets available now for both French and English performances!
