The List

By Jennifer Tremblay Translated by Shelley Tepperman

Paperback £16.99

  • Governor General's Literary Award for Drama in French - 2008

She keeps a tight list and doesn't let anything go unchecked, except for one important misplaced item: a favour to her neighbour. With this broken promise, a series of events unfolds that lead to her friend's death. Was the death preventable had the task been completed?

Jennifer Tremblay's play The List is the riveting story of a woman haunted by internal regret when she fails to critically prioritise her world. It won the 2008 Governor General's Literary Award for Drama in French, and had its English-language premiere in Ottawa in 2010.

Press Quotes

'Shelley Tepperman's English translation of The List (La Liste) is exceptional. If there was anything lost in translation it was undetectable in this compelling reading of a script that is structured like poetry yet realized with complete and heartbreaking humanity'
