Written by Alexandre Goyette
Directed by Christian Fortin / With Alexandre Goyette
Produced by L.I.F. :T. (Les idées flottantes: Théâtre)
Presented in French.
David Morin, a.k.a. “King Dave,” a young man with something of a teenager still about him, thinks he’s invincible. However, one night at a wild party, his life starts to spin out of control, and he’s inexorably drawn into the violent world of street gangs. An astonishing one-man show, this first play by playwright and performer Alexandre Goyette won the prestigious Masques (awards) for Best Original Script and Best Performance by a Male Actor, 2005. A darkly gripping, breathlessly suspenseful blend of horror and humour.
“Quebec sensation's show a must. Maniacal energy, eagerness and humanity.” Matt Radz, The Gazette (Montreal)
