Tableau D’Hôte Theatre recently announced its 2018-2019 season alongside eight other professional English Montréal theatre companies. Our upcoming season encourages audiences to see the world differently by examining what we choose to remember or forget, and who society tries to erase along the way. How does memory guide and shape the lives we live, and how can we harness the stories of past struggles and acts of defiance to build a kinder, fairer world?


Julie Tamiko Manning’s Mizushōbai (The Water Trade) has been selected as the recipient of the first edition of our More than a footnote’s development program! Stay tuned for more news.

Mizushōbai (The Water Trade) tells the tale Kiyoko Tanaka-Goto, a pioneering stereotype-defying brothel madam who lost everything when the Canadian government set up internment camps for Japanese people living on the West coast. “A young, Japanese woman in the early 20th century had the directness, savvy and confidence to take her place in the new world, a world she created, a world far from home and family, where she was in control. Kiyoko has become a port-mortem mentor for me.”
