Timely Deception
The Association franco-yukonnaise is proud to present "Timely Deception", a bilingual play from the original work of Franco-Ontarian playwright, Michel Ouellette. 100% bilingual play, surtitled in English/French.
The bilingual adaptation is the work of members of Franco50, the Francophone elders network of Yukon.
More than a condemnation of abuse and financial exploitation by loved ones, this play promotes taking responsibility in the face of violence, thanks to the antics of its main character, the perplexing Baptiste Potvin.
We find Baptiste Potvin, resident of an extended care facility, grappling with a guilty conscience. During the course of his long convalescence, he has managed to recover from acute depression by repressing his regrets, all the while faking dementia in order to keep his room. But the past won't let him be, and it could well disrupt his safe little world! Not only is he likely to be released from the residence, he's confronted with an abusive situation between a good friend and her daughter. Will he finally listen to his inner voice calling him to assert himself, and act, or will he play the poor demented soul act even more?
