Manon / Sandra

By Michel Tremblay Translated by John Van Burek

A controversial but humane duet by the renowned Quebecois writer, translated by John Van Burek.

The play crosscuts the lives of Manon, an obsessively religious girl, and 'Sandra', a sex-obsessed transvestite, exploring the similarities and differences between them.

Michel Tremblay's play Manon / Sandra was first performed in this translation by John Van Burek at the Traverse Theatre, Edinburgh, in 1984.
