As a child, David Paquet would make up stories for his three faithful imaginary friends. That love of storytelling took him to the National Theatre School, where he studied writing. In 2010, audiences discovered his unique voice and dark humour in Porcupine (Governor General’s Literary Award, Michel Tremblay Prize). For teenage audiences, he wrote 2 h 14 and Appels entrants illimités, and co-wrote Les grands-mères mortes, presented at the NAC in 2015. That same year he ventured onto the stage with his poetic solo show, Papiers mâchés. Histoires à plumes et à poils is his first play for children.
