A (True) Story

Written and Created By ANAÏS PELLIN
in collaboration with Emilie Leclerc and ​​Anne-Marie Levasseur

From Kleine Compagnie and Théâtre de la Pire Espèce comes this object theatre piece showcasing masterful table-top puppetry and storytelling.

February 21-26, 2023 | Langham Court Theatre

En route to her family vacation, Clémentine suddenly learns that her parents are no longer in love. The word “divorce” hurts to hear. She promises herself to do everything she can to prevent it. But does a little girl really get to decide her parents’ story?

Navigating episodes of her everyday life throughout the seasons, with the help of her little sister Laura, Clémentine tames her sadness and finds the strength to mourn the image she had of the “fairy tale family”.

Whimsical puppetry & heartfelt storytelling help young Clementine navigate tough family changes and find the true meaning of love. Bright, bubbly & entertaining, this show for kids and their grown-ups tackles a tricky topic with humour, honesty & optimism.
