Of all the characters he has created, Albertine seems to have a particular hold on internationally celebrated playwright Michael Trembley.  In Albertine in Five Times, we see her at five different stages from the 1940’s – 1980’s and try to figure out if there was a point when she might have chosen a different fate.  Trying to keep her spirits up on her first night in a senior’s residence, Albertine at 70 summons up four younger versions of herself – at age 30, 40, 50 and 60, as well as a glass version of her sister Madeline to keep her company.
