Pourquoi tu pleures…?


The death of an overbearing father, an inheritance worth more than five million dollars to be distributed “according to individual need”, and suddenly the value system of a mother and her four children is seriously put to the test. What qualifies as a “need”? An ambition, a compensation, a dream… As past and present interweave, family secrets emerge.

With its sardonic humour, the hilarious comedy Pourquoi tu pleures…? marks the return to Vancouver of Christian Bégin and the company Les Éternels Pigistes. With a cast of actors at the height of their artistic powers, this production—premiered in 2016 by the Théâtre du Nouveau Monde—confronts us with the individualism of our societies.
