SYNOPSIS: 887 is coined after Lepage’s childhood home—887 Murray Ave., Quebec City, Canada—and shares personal experiences from his youth.
As Lepage revisits his childhood home and other brilliantly reconstructed spaces—from the front seat of his cabdriver father’s taxi to his own ultramodern present-day flat—the questions multiply. Why do we remember the phone number from our youth yet forget our current one? How does a childhood song withstand the test of time while the name of a loved one escapes us? And how is theatre—an art based in part on the act of recollection—still relevant in a digital age where megabytes take the place of memory?
