Simon Doucet, unjustly imprisoned for nearly forty years, invites his old friend Bishop Jean Bilodeau to a special theatrical event designed to inspire him to confess the events of a warm Autumn evening in 1912. Simon must know what happened in "...those minutes that cost me the last forty years of my life."

A passionate and engrossing masterpiece by award-winning Canadian playwright Michel Marc Bouchard, Lilies employs the simple and singular elements of live theatre to tell a romantic and moving story of love, revenge and enlightenment.

Lilies won the Dora Mavor Moore Award for Outstanding New Play and the Chalmers Award for Best Play in 1992. The film adaptation became an audience favourite at the 1996 San Francisco Gay & Lesbian Film Festival and won the Canadian Genie (equivalent to the American Academy Award) for Best Motion Picture of 1996.

The love story no-one ever told you.

The show contains male nudity and is only suitable for 16+
