News: (Ottawa) NAC French Theatre announces season

A new season, a new artistic director: Wajdi Mouawad, the outgoing AD, literally gave incoming director Brigitte Haentjens the keys to the house yesterday. The new commander, a well-known name in Quebec and Franco-Ontarian theatre circles, announced a lineup that includes 22 shows; 13 for general public, nine for young audiences.

Highlights include: Patrice Chéreau's production of La Douleur (also announced as part of the TNM's season);  Denis Marleau's collage Oulipo Show; The Changing Room, a drag queen drama where the house will be transformed into a cabaret; Ubu sur la table, an adaptation of Alfred Jarry's Ubu plays by Olivier Ducas and Michel Monty.
