Our first will will be 'L'autre cote de novembre'/ 'The Other Side of November' by Maryanne Zehil.Léa / Leyla, are two women who, having worked hard all their lives, are confronted with the choices that shaped their existence and question themselves about what trace they will leave behind. Léa is a single neurosurgeon resident in Quebec. Leyla is a seamstress and mother who lives in a remote village in Lebanon. Memory disorders force them to question themselves. They are both attracted by the past, returning to those choices of life that mark us forever. What if one of these women had not left her country of origin to immigrate to Canada? What if Lea and Leyla were one and the same person? In trying to see more clearly, Léa and Layla go up the thread of events to a childhood friend who disappeared without a trace.

The story: Claire (played by Jillian Kenny’18 as her Senior Captone project in the Theatre major) has Psychogenic Amnesia – although she can retain a lot of information over the course of a day, she wakes up the next morning a blank slate. So every day is truly a new day! She approaches the world with optimism but the wacky characters around her try to alter her sense of reality, in the same way that a funhouse or carnival mirror distorts what it reflects. This darkly comic thrill-ride contains mature situations and very strong language. Says Director Peter Harrigan: “This play has something to offend everyone – with references to casual drug use, suicide, spousal abuse, intellectual and physical disabilities, speech defects, and religion – plus a potty-mouthed puppet who uses every bad word imaginable. So why produce it? What lesson could it offer, aside from adding more noise to an already divisive world? The answer lies with Claire: if she can approach the world with positivity and a sense wonder – even though she really has no idea what the day will hold - why can’t we?” Lauren Sousa ‘18 is serving as Scenic Designer as her Senior Capstone project.
