A moving tale
“A boy shaped by his mother’s irreverent tales of family and friends grows to become a playwright and entertain the world with his own tales of family and friends, and finally, using that skill — the gift she gave him — to bring his mother one final joy in the only way he can, as he closes the circle.” 4/5 Stars
“This simple two-hand is theatre at its most elemental, but also most at its most powerful. It’s theatre as resurrection. Tremblay’s love for his mother, the creative force that brought an even more creative force into the world, is so strong that she will live on as long as theatres exist. 3.5/4 Stars
“This is not the first time the festival has mounted a work by Quebec’s most distinguished playwright, but this is the production for the memory books. Peacock’s stunning performance is the major triumph…”
“Tremblay’s mother died before his theatrical career took off. For the Pleasure of Seeing Her Again pays deep, abiding homage to the woman who helped create the writer and the playwright. He repays his mother with a gift worthy of the gift she bequeathed him.”
“…one of those rare pieces of theatre that manages to be both moving and hilarious….Peacock once again proves that, in her maturity, she has become a truly great artist and Rooney continues to enforce his reputation as one of the masters of minimalism.” 4/4 Stars.
