About the Author
David FennarioAnglophone playwright born David Wiper in Montreal, Quebec, 1947. He was raised in the working-class district of Pointe-St-Charles, an area he would make the centre of most of his plays.
The bilingual nature of the drama makes it a great play instead of a good one, but the setting itself could be anywhere. Balconville is a work of genius. It’s angry, bitter, cruel and funny. It’s a real vision of this countryand even more rareit’s a moment when bilingualism has found a voice.”
