A prisoner persuades a bishop he's known since he was a boy to hear his confession, making the bishop a captive audience for a play, enacted by the other inmates, that dramatizes the prisoner's past. Forty years earlier, in 1912, he'd been one of three young gay men looking for love in or trying to get out of a village in Quebec, where repression led to tragedy. Fluid, inventive transitions occur between the staged drama and the remembered events it chronicles—events played out by the same all-male cast, some of whom portray women—and the mannered manipulation of time, place, and gender creates a layered and deeply emotional narrative. Directed by John Greyson and written by Michel Marc Bouchard, adapting his own play.
