Directed by Brian Quirt, The List is a translation of La Liste. The original French play won the 2008 Governor General’s Award for French Drama. This production is the world premiere of the English translation, which was commissioned by GCTC.
Starring Tracey Ferencz, The List is the poetic and moving story of one woman’s sense of isolation while living in a rural town in Quebec. A mother of three children, this woman tells the audience of her attempts to bring order to chaos through the obsessive maintenance of her to-do lists. However, when one of the items on her lists remains undone, she must deal with the dire consequence – and the resulting guilt – her negligence caused.
Newly-appointed in July as GCTC’s Associate Artistic Director, Quirt is also the founding Artistic Director of Nightswimming, a Toronto-based dramaturgical company that commissions and develops new works of theatre, dance and music. Quirt has been nominated for three Dora Mavor Moore Awards, twice for direction (Andy Massinghams’ Rough House in 2005 and Don Druick’s Through the Eyes in 2003) and once for Best New Play (Translation and Adaptation) for Aurash, with Soheil Parsa.
Ferencz is a Toronto-based actress, and was a member of the Shaw Festival Acting Ensemble for ten seasons. She has been nominated for a Dora Mavor Moore Award for Much Ado About Nothing with Shakespeare in the Rough and for a Betty Mitchell Award for A Streetcar Named Desire with Theatre Calgary.
The set and costumes are designed by Brian Smith, and the lighting design is by Jock Munro. The composer and sound designer is Sarah Hallman and Natasha Bakht is the movement consultant. The Stage Manager is Samira Rose.
