Théâtre du Trident, Quebec City's foremost professional company, launched its new season this week and after a year of presenting unsafe productions of traditional works (La Nuit des rois, for instance), they are going into a season of more modern works which have mostly been tested elsewhere. A season, they say, which will make noise.
Among the offerings is the very touching Moisés Kaufman/Tectonic Theatre Project drama The Laramie Project, about the town where Matthew Shepard was murdered and how they dealt with international - and often unpleasant - media attention. The company will also be presenting the Nick Dear adaptation of Frankenstein, recently a huge hit in London at the National, directed by Danny Boyle. Ionesco's Rhinoceros also makes an appearance in the year. Starting the season is Tout ce qui tombe, a co-pro with Théâtre des Fonds de Tiroirs and capping it a cabaret: Les Enrobantes.
