ON THE ROCKS
presented by Theatre Passe Muraille
written and conceived by Louise Pitre
starring Louise Pitre
original songs by Louise Pitre, W. Joseph Matheson and Diane Leah

The grand lady of Canadian musical theatre exposes herself in this new, disarmingly personal account of a little French-Canadian girl’s journey through life and love; a high-octane one-woman show with songs - most of them original! You think you know Louise Pitre? Think again. This is a mixed cocktail of raw emotion: get a tall glass, throw in a huge heart, drown it in joy, abandon and childish optimism; pierce it with heartbreak and frustration; add a dash of vulnerability; throw in the wackiest stir stick you can find and voilà! Sit on a rock and enjoy!
Cheers: one to drown the sorrow, one to toast tomorrows.
