Overview

An extended tour de force with no act or scene breaks, Marcel Pursued by the Hounds examines how our ?innocent” childhood games and fantasies can come back to haunt us in adult life, full of the dangers and realities that were invisible to us as children. An extended dialogue between the characters Marcel (one of the main characters in Tremblay’s novel The First Quarter of the Moon) and Thérèse (one of the main characters in the novel Thérèse and Pierrette and the Little Hanging Angel), illuminated by a chorus of the fates, it is Michel Tremblay’s toughest, most uncompromising play to date.

Cast of 4 women and 1 adolescent male.
