Carole Fréchette: Two Plays (print)

John and Beatrice
High above the city, Beatrice sits on the 33rd floor of an office tower waiting for the right man to respond to her ad. When John appears, the games begin. But if he wins, what then? A play about the difficulty of connection and the meaning of love.
"John and Beatrice is, quite simply, exquisite: it should be savoured." —Le Soir, Brussels

Helen's Necklace
Helen wanders through a Middle Eastern city looking for a lost pearl necklace. In language as shimmering as the strand of pearls itself—its value isn't what we initially think—Fréchette brings Helen into contact with a series of people, from a friendly taxi driver to a distraught mother and an angrily impassioned man. Helen's world is irrevocably changed by her search for a trinket.
"A pearl of a play... riveting!" —NOW Magazine, Toronto

Nominated for the 2007 Governor General's Literary Award in Translation (French to English)
