Under the artistic co-direction of playwrights and performers Catherine Côté and Charles Fournier, Mon père est mort (MPEM) creates and produces accessible theatrical works that offer food for thought on contemporary social issues. The company's strength lies in its bifocal vision, embodied in its co-artistic direction, which promotes creative theater and contemporary dramaturgy by tackling current issues in a singular, straightforward and humane way.  

Simple and direct, the company's name reflects the co-directors' desire for transparency and truth. It evokes the company's predilection for works that present things as they are, without compromise.  

The name Mon père est mort refers to the founding event of the meeting between Catherine Côté and Charles Fournier. In 2011, Charles' father's devastating cancer and death prompted him to change careers and audition for theatrical schools. A few months later, the two artists met at the Conservatoire d'art dramatique de Québec, from which they graduated in 2015.

BABY SHOWER TRAILER

Horizontale recadré.jpg

Anne-Marie has succeeded in everything she set out to do. Only one thing is missing from her happiness: a child. Her miscarriages have devastated her and she has isolated herself, unable to bear the motherhood of her friends. When her sister Jade becomes pregnant by accident, Anne-Marie has no choice but to support her and throws her a surprise baby shower. But the party quickly turns sour: no one wants to be there, not even the main character...

Between sparkling non-alcoholic cocktails and glittery cupcakes, their friendship is shaken. Jealousy, strong opinions and revealed secrets fuel the anger, provoking heated discussions, embarrassing games and... the destruction of the diaper cake !

By exposing the pernicious side of the baby shower, this dramatic comedy explores the rivalry between women while celebrating their power.

If it takes a village to raise a child, perhaps it also takes several women to raise a mother ?

"I have the impression that if I've done something wrong, they'll disappear for real (...)".

"Okay, I'm going to give birth to this child.

Can you say 'surprise'?"

- Excerpts from Baby Shower (translated from french)
