Stormbound (Crystal Ice Reflections) is a play that revolves around the lives of five ethnically - and otherwise - diverse Canadians living in Mme. Fleurant’s rooming house in downtown Montreal. Set during the Quebec ice storm of 1998, a steep, ice-coated, wrought iron staircase outside makes escape treacherous. While inside, landlady Mme. Fleurant is living behind layers of lies and years of denial. A neighbour’s jazz piano playing, and the arrival of a mysterious young man, spark memories while divisive issues of race, language, sexuality, and deception force Mme. Fleurant and her tenants to confront the shared human need for love, truth, acceptance, and ultimately family - in whatever form it takes. Carol Cece Anderson
