The Toronto Fringe Festival

Playwright: Colleen Murphy
Director: Jennifer Thomson


Eastminster United Church – Community Space


July 4th, 2019 – July 14th, 2019


After their son survives the Montreal Massacre, the Fournier family struggles to hold themselves together. A play about survivors and the private challenges they face once the public face of tragedy has passed.
“Heartbreaking yet never sentimental, spare yet complex,” The December Man (L’homme de décembre) was awarded the 2007 Governor General’s Award. This site-specific production is performed near the site of the 2018 Danforth shooting and explores survivor’s guilt following acts of public violence. “A brave but important play.” (
