Upon leaving the National Theatre School of Canada’s Playwriting program, Marie-Hélène Larose-Truchon won a contest for young theatre professionals and younger audiences. Her pieces Minuit (Leméac) and Un Oiseau m’attend received special mentions for the Gratien-Gélinas prize, which she won in 2021 for her Le Jardin d’Éden. She is also the author of two plays for young audiences, Crème-Glacée and Amande-Amandine, both published by L’Arche Éditeur.
Her most recent play, La nuit du caribou, was performed in Bonaventure in summer 2022. Her plays have been produced by Le Petit Théâtre de Sherbrooke, Double Signe, the Théâtre la Seizième and the Théâtre de la Petite Marée, and in France by Théâtre en Scène and L’insomniaque cie. She teaches a writing workshop for the National Theatre School of Canada.
