Lilies

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 fiery Autumn evening in 1912. Simon must know what happened to his beautiful young lover Vallier in "...those minutes that cost me the last forty years of my life". Lilies tells the romantic, sensual and moving story of Doucet and Bilodeaus shared Catholic past and tormented present.

Notes:

Original Playwright - Michel Marc Bouchard. In a play that unfolds with progressively blurred boundaries between lust and brutality, between truth and elaborate ?ction, Bouchard dramatizes how gay men often must learn to lie before they learn how to love. Throughout 2011 and 2012, Tom at the Farm was produced in Quebec and France, as Tom la ferme, and in Mexico, as Tom en la granja. Award-winning Quebec director Xavier Dolan adapted the play for the screen in 2013, with Caleb Landry Jones in the leading role.

Tom At The Farm

Following the accidental death of his lover, and in the throes of his grief, urban ad executive Tom travels to the country to attend the funeral and to meet his mother-in-law, Agatha, and her son, Francis  neither of whom know Tom even exists. Arriving at the remote rural farm, and immediately drawn into the dysfunction of the familys relationships, Tom is blindsided by his lost partners legacy of untruth. With the mother expecting a chainsmoking girlfriend, and the older brother hellbent on preserving a facade of normalcy, Tom is coerced into joining the duplicity until, at last, he confronts the torment that drove his lover to live in the shadows of deceit.The lover  the friend, the son, the brother, the nameless dead man  has left behind a fable woven of false-truths which, according to his own teenage diaries, were essential to his survival. In this same rural setting, one young man had once destroyed another young man who loved yet another. Like an ancient tragedy, years later, this drama will shape the destiny of Tom.
