A Moon Between Two Houses
Plume is lively, chatty, cheerful. Taciturne, on the other hand, talks little, but she watches and listens. Her passion is music.
They live next door to each other, but that, it seems, is all they have in common. Only in the night, with its spooky sounds and looming shadows, do they learn how to find out about each other, smooth over their differences, and become friends.
A foundational play in Quebec theatre for young audiences, this poetic fable directly addresses the idea of being open to another and to the world, expressed through a symbolic universe that children instinctively understand.

“For its exploration of new staging avenues, the acuity of its intention, and its humanist message, the new version presented at Maison Théâtre, directed by Marie-Ève Huot, is a landmark event.
“… The gems of our dramaturgy continue to shine despite the passage of time. The glow that surrounds this version of Lune entre deux maisons will not fade anytime soon.”
Olivier Dumas, montheatre.qc.ca
“Here, the world of the stage gives way to an invitation to dreams. Children recognize themselves there easily thanks to some simple but familiar elements. The actors perfectly embody childhood and clearly communicate the subtextual emotions. In fact, by my own observation, they were able to keep the attention of the little ones (three to five years old) in the audience for the entire duration of the show.”
