That doesn’t surprise me at all. To me this is three different stories – the one played through the characters, the one that you cannot help going back to in your head if you recall Dec 6 1989, and the story between the lines.

The December Man
In 2007, Colleen Murphy won the Governor General's Literary Award in Drama for The December Man.(L'homme de décembre) This is a play based on the ripple effect of a public tragedy. One might think of L'école Polytechnique student Sarto Blais; still many more have suffered and continue to suffer from this historic tragedy.
"I believe what I believe. I believe you open a kid’s mouth and pour hate down their throat they’re gonna grow up hating everything - women, men, kids, even – Benoit Fournier, from The December Man.(L'homme de décembre)
There are such a ripple effect in this horribly timely piece. And since you wrote this, so many more of these types of campus shootings have occurred.
"Ah – there is always a story between the lines, and it just falls into place. When you get into a play with the characters, you have to go with the flow.

It’s hard writing backwards which I actually did. In fact, that made it both easier and harder. It’s a very emotional piece. It’s tough, not just emotionally, but technically and structurally as well.

I just remember that the technical angle was just as tough as the emotional one."
The December Man (L'homme de décembre) directed for Canadian Stage by Micheline Chevrier, is the story of what happens when a struggling working class couple from Montreal, Kathleen and Benoit Fournier, try to help son Jean deal with the aftermath of the Montreal Massacre. At the beginning of the play [link widoczny dla zalogowanych], the last pebble is thrown. The first scene begins in March 1992, but the plays ends in December 1989.
