Short biography
Tremblay grew up in the working-class Francophone neighborhood of Plateau Mont-Royal. In the midst of the Quiet Revolution, his debut play, Les Belles Soeurs, took the Quebec art scene by storm for its unprecedented use of joual, honest and affectionate portrayal of working-class women, and criticism of conservative Quebec culture. He is a prolific writer and playwright, almost always centering his stories on women and gay men. He once told an interviewer "I think I am a rare breed, a homosexual who doesn't like men." He is also a staunch Quebec nationalist, and only recently permitted his plays to be performed in English in Quebec, although he has always allowed them to be performed in English and other languages elsewhere.
