Six years after her mother's death, Mae moves home to care for her terminally ill father. She imagines moments of reconciliation and grace, but unlike Peggy – her kind, peacemaking mother, Al does not handle his decline with grace. Mae struggles in her role as caregiver, summoning memories of her mother for guidance.  With humor and compassion, Mae strives to reach her final goal...to give her father a good death.

”That was not the deal.  That was not the plan.  You dying first is not the plan.  You can’t leave me with him.  I’d rather be an orphan.”

Confessions of a Reluctant Caregiver

CONFESSIONS OF A RELUCTANT CAREGIVER offers insight into the often-overlooked experiences of family caregivers who are at risk of experiencing high caregiver burden while managing health-related communication and decision-making.

The play is also a valuable learning experience for caregivers and practitioners that positively associates the important facets of experiential learning - such as perceived realism, increased reflection, strong emotions, and increased comfort with difficult behaviors, providing a safe environment to identify and understand sensitive and complex issues associated with end-of-life care.

“I just recently lost my grandfather to cancer and witnessed interactions with hospice. I feel that this play accurately represents end of life issues and it really helped me deal with my own emotions. Thank you.”

Germaine Lauzon is a lucky woman : she has just won a million GoldStar stamps that she can redeem for items for her home from the catalog. She recruits her neighbours, her family, and her friends to help her place the stamps in their booklets. Jealousy surfaces as unexpected guests arrive at Germaine’s cramped apartment. This renowned dramatic comedy by Michel Tremblay transports the audience back to Montreal during the 1960s and delves into the socially complex world of housewives.
