Written by Alyson Grant
Directed by Guy Sprung
Cast: Patricia Summersett, Diana Fajrajsl, Zach Fraser, and James Soares-Correia

Infinithéâtre is privileged to present the world premiere of Alyson Grant's Trench Patterns, the winner of their 2011 Write-On-Q! playwriting contest, from Oct. 23 to Nov.18 at Bain St-Michel. Directed by Guy Sprung, the show stars Patricia Summersett, Diana Fajrajsl, Zach Fraser and James Soares-Correia. Jacqueline is a wounded Canadian Forces combat officer returned from Afghanistan after a mission gone fatally wrong. She is angry, intelligent and funny, traits she uses to keep her mind from the violent events of the day that broke her. Solace comes from ghostlike visitations including her great grandfather, Jacques, a French Montréaler conscripted into World War One and executed for desertion and cowardice. As she recedes into his haunted world, we see her slowly move closer to her own.
