Summary Playwright Michel Tremblay and director André Brassard have a talent for capturing the earthy wit and joual (slang) of Montréal's east-end working-class neighborhood, rendering them into live theater described by some critics as "outrageously funny." Both their vision and their style have had an important influence on other Québec artists. We experience Les belles-soeurs and Demain matin, Montréal m'attend , as well as an impromptu bit of playacting by the cast of the two plays
