‘Albertine in Five Times’ Ballyduff Drama Group Sunday 6th
Of all the characters he has created, Albertine seems to have a particular hold on internationally celebrated playwright Michael Tremblay.
In Albertine in Five Times, translated by Linda Gaboriau, we see her at five different ages from the 1940s to 1980s and try to figure out if there was a point when she might have chosen a different fate.
Trying to keep her spirits up on her first night in a senior’s residence, Albertine at 70 summons four younger versions of herself – at age 30, 40, 50 and 60 as well as an ageless version of her late sister Madeleine to keep her company.
