SYNOPSIS

THE CARDINAL FAMILY GATHERS to celebrate a birthday. Six characters, all of the same family, make small talk throughout the evening, although each one is living a personal drama shared only with the audience. As the saga unfolds, the mysterious disappearance of Joseph Cardinal, their grandfather, will take us from 1940’s New York to that dark day in Dallas in November 1963. None of them knows when or where their grandfather died, but the unraveling of his fate will have a very different impact on each one of them. Inspired in part by his trip to Afghanistan while working on a documentary for the National Film Board of Canada, Claude Guilmain’s play questions our fascination with the American dream. Tell me what haunts you and I will tell you who you are…
