The smash hit of Centaur Theatre's 2014-15 season, Triplex Nervosa is a rollicking comedy set in Montreal's legendary music hub, Mile End. Tass Nazor has given up her cello to buy a three-story stone apartment building. Her friends/tenants, a clingy seller and semi-reliable handyman drive her to the brink. The sequel, Rooftop Eden, finds Tass hosting a memorial dinner for one who has died, meanwhile juggling motherhood and a musical career. A few months later, Famously delivers the ultimate clash of ambition versus domestic bliss. Seven actors play 17 characters. Features music by the incomparable Mile End composer/performer Patrick Watson.
