    By: Michel Tremblay
    Translated by: Linda Gaboriau
    Directed by: Diane Brokenshire 

    In a compelling balance of hilarity and poignancy, Tremblay offers glimpses of himself and his mother at five different stages of their lives together. A born storyteller, prone to exaggeration and invention, Nana often exasperates the son she so fiercely loves, yet proves to be an inspiration for his art.
