Raucous. Realistic. Women.
Germaine is the lucky winner of one million green stamps. When fourteen of her friends, neighbours, and family members join her in working-class Montreal to celebrate, her windfall ends up igniting lurking resentments. Michel Tremblay’s two-act play, first produced in 1968, against the backdrop of Quebec’s quiet revolution, changed Quebec theatre, with its kitchen-sink representation of ordinary women speaking in their own dialect.
