Can happiness be bought and sold, or have we been misled by that mythical thing called the American dream? AMERICANDREAM.CA Part 1: Malaise is the tragicomic story of three siblings whose families convene to celebrate a milestone birthday and ponder the fate of a long-lost grandfather. Each character has a dark secret that only the audience will witness as the story moves deftly between the present day, 1940s New York, and a terrible day in Dallas. The real tragedy – or is it comedy? – lies in the characters’ inability to talk to one another.

Ruthless in its portrayal of modern Canadian society, AMERICANDREAM.CA Part 1: Malaise is the first piece in an ambitious trilogy written by CLAUDE GUILMAIN and produced by Toronto’s THÉÂTRE LA TANGENTE.

Presented primarily in French.
