How I Became Canadian

Iris Gardet-Hadengue (Toronto, ON)

Playwright: Iris Gardet-Hadengue
Director: Anne Marie Scheffler

Show Type:


Running Time: 55 minutes

Iris Gardet-Hadengue is coming back home. From home. Iris is a Frantic Frenchie from France in Chill Canada. Her flight from Paris has just landed. She’s stopped by the Canadian customs officer who notices her new resident status. He jokingly tests her knowledge of Canada. She throws herself into the reasons Canada is her new home by remembering her last night in Paris, just the night before. We are taken to the Paris restaurant where Iris is surrounded by friends. With Iris’ fresh perspective of her love for her new home Canada, we get to remember why Canadians are so unique in this world. It’s a celebration of everything Canadian from a Parisian woman’s point of view.
