We all are filled with the memories of our first home and our first experiences of the world in which we lived. Home is our first playground, a place that never leaves us.

 For this new creation dedicated to the whole family, three devoted domestic employees introduce us to the plastic and sensorial universe of their master who spent his life collecting houses. They open the doors of his curiosities room and invite us to travel through the intimate territories of that enigmatic and yet so familiar character. 

 This “memory” play is so sublime, and so brilliantly designed that it’s impossible not to fall in love with the sheer brilliance of it. It is an invitation to profound engagement with the imagination, which we believe our community’s children will find extremely rewarding.



With the support of the

Embassy of France in Canada.
