You Will Remember Me
How will you be remembered? How will you choose to remember those you love? As the aging patriarch of a modern family – a university professor, political and intellectual force, and long-time sovereigntist – suffers from dementia, the people who love him struggle to make room in their lives for his care. A vivid and elegant drama about family and memory from one of Québec’s most dynamic voices: Governor General’s Award-winning playwright François Archambault.

NNNN “You won’t soon forget R.H. Thomson’s brilliant performance” – NOW Magazine
“You Will Remember Me is personal, familial and political; exquisitely played by R.H. Thomson; It’s the first new play in a long time to occasion honest tears.” – National Post
“The play is richly written, thematically resonant, and well-constructed. It’s also funny, emotionally stunning, and deeply moving.” – Mooney on Theatre
“This is an extraordinary play with a superb cast giving outstanding performances. Joel Greenberg’s directing shows sensitivity and subtlety.” – James Karas Reviews
