Damnée Manon, Sacrée Sandra

By Michel Tremblay
Translated by John Van Burek

In Damnée Manon, Sacrée Sandra, Michel Tremblay examines the sacred and the profane—their similarities and differences; how they merge and become one another. The play consists of two interweaving monologues on religion and sex spoken by Manon (from Forever Yours, Marie-Lou) and Sandra (from Hosanna). In the end, both characters realize that they have been “invented” by the author.

"A hauntingly powerful evening of theatre."
