Theater: discover À la folie! [in French]

Co-written by Guy Richer, À la folie! features Charles, a party boy who must care for his mother, who has Alzheimer's disease. A play full of humor and sensitivity.


À la folie! tells the story of Charles, a party boy who has to take care of his mother, who has Alzheimer’s. “He’s certainly the most ill-prepared guy to become a caregiver,” says Guy Richer, the play’s co-writer.

He wanted to highlight the extraordinary role of caregivers:

Being a caregiver means giving of yourself, putting your life on hold to take care of someone you love. For me, it’s overwhelming.

The play is intended to be both humorous and moving, and also features a number of singing imitations of great artists: Jean-Pierre Ferland, Julien Clerc, Joe Dassin, Cat Stevens, Tom Jones and many others.
