The Guid Sisters

The Guid Sisters

By Michel Tremblay
Translated by Martin Bowman and Bill Findlay
Directed by Serge Denoncourt
A co-production with the National Theatre of Scotland

A big win and a night in. When the girls get together, nothing's left to chance!

Germaine Lauzon wins a million Green Shield stamps. She's in for a windfall but she can only collect her winnings by sticking each and every stamp into her saver books.

As the night wears on her kitchen fills to bursting with family, friends and neighbours eager to help Germaine (and maybe themselves). A riot ensues as this formidable group of women talk about life, the world and the men in their lives.

This 'rich, raucous and gritty' Scots version of Québécois writer Michel Tremblay's play Les Belles-Soeurs premiered at the Tron Theatre, Glasgow in 1989 and has not had a major revival since.

The Lyceum and the National Theatre of Scotland present this Scots classic, directed by Serge Denoncourt, one of Canada's leading directors including his work with Cirque du Soleil.

The Guid Sisters will transfer to the King's Theatre, Glasgow from 23-27 October 2012.

A co-production with the National Theatre of Scotland. Supported by Bank of Scotland Pioneering Partnership.
