Melanie’s son Benoit, age 8, has a pain that won’t go away, so she takes him to the dentist. Naturally, this results in an epic meltdown. You see, with Benoit, nothing is ever simple. The proof: once in the dentist’s chair, Benoit turns out to have a lot more than cavities inside his mouth… In the end, Melanie – with the help of a kindly alcoholic receptionist, and a dentist who prefers plants to people – must face the fact that her son’s problems are much larger than a simple toothache.

Le Soulier is a bipolar comedy, full of touching and relatable characters trying so very hard to be happy. David Paquet, who won the Governor-General’s Award for Literature in 2010 and the Prix auteur dramatique du Centre du Théâtre d’Aujourd’hui in 2017, has written a hilarious and unsettling play in which empathy triumphs over illness.
