Linda Gaboriau's English translation stays loyal to Evelyne de la Cheneli#65533;re's beautiful imagery and poetic language in this stunning adaptation of Marie Cardinal's celebrated novel, Une vie pour deux.

When Pierre and Simone planned a vacation to the Irish coast, they were hoping to revive their failing marriage. What they weren't expecting was to stumble upon the body of Mary, a drowned woman, during a walk along the beach. It's not long before curiosity and obsession take over, and the couple begin to piece together Mary's history using both facts and their imaginations. As her story comes alive, Mary's presence insinuates itself into Pierre and Simone's lives, resurrecting their memories and regrets. Now they must struggle more than ever to revisit the past in order to write their own story.

"A beautiful, poetic piece. The writing is in equal parts sophisticated, sensitive, and ironic." -- Le Devoir

"Evelyne de la Cheneli#65533;re's play is magnificently well-written, triggering deeply-felt emotions. A superb piece... as troubling as it is moving." -- Journal de Montr#65533;al
