Steve Galluccio's newest stage triumph is a comedy set in 1952 Naples. It recounts how one broken engagement ripples throughout friends and family, affecting all of their respective lives in different ways. In a world conflicted by traditional values and postwar-era thinking, theatrical archetypes evolve into stereotypes that became hallmarks of the Sophia Loren and Marcello Mastroianni films in the early 1960s.

A favourite of the Montreal Fringe Festival, Steve Galluccio is a playwright with a delightful flair for comedy. His fast-paced plays are full of populist art, local references, and camp sensibility.

By Steve Galluccio

Sophie Bienvenu is a Québécois writer. After studying visual communication in Paris, she settled in Quebec in 2001 and quickly established herself as a successful blogger. Et au pire, on se mariera (La Mèche) her first novel, was followed by Chercher Sam (translation forthcoming from Talonbooks, 2019), and Autour d’elle, translated as Around Her by Rhonda Mullins (Talonbooks, 2018). Ceci n’est pas de l’amour (This Is Not Love) was her first poetry collection, published in 2016 by Poètes de brousse. Bienvenu’s writing takes its readers on an emotional journey, an intense exploration of profoundly human characters, transforming the ordinary into the extraordinary.
