In an impromptu get-together in her Nuns’ Island penthouse, on the afternoon of her return from Europe, h
er mother (a popular Montreal stage and television actress pushing 70), and her idealistic committed-to-new-work daughter goad her. What is the sense of an international career if your art doesn’t contribute to change (or at least to widespread pleasure and inspiration) in the society you live in?
