After notable appearances in various galas, comedy evenings, TV shows and podcasts, Christine Morency is ready to take the plunge. In this first solo show, aptly titled Gracethe comedian delivers “a little embarrassing” personal anecdotes and asks himself questions on more committed subjects, such as body diversity and sexual misconduct.

Grace, it’s my little personal therapy that I share so that we all laugh about it together, mentions the comedian in a press release. So much the better if it also serves us as collective therapy, but my intention is never to lecture. »

For the texts, Christine Morency worked with Justine Philie, who also does the script-editing, as well as Étienne Marcoux and Odrée Rousseau. The staging is by Charles Dauphinais, winner of an Olivier for the show by Pierre Hébert, Risk appetite.
