Robert Lepage recounts the story of his early life as he walks beside the model of his former home at 887 Avenue Murray.

Robert Lepage’s one-man autobiographical play 887 doesn’t make the audience feel like he’s alone on stage at all. With the use of state-of-the-art technology and low-tech props, many characters come to life in the miniature apartment building at 887 Avenue Murray, the setting of Lepage’s childhood in the Montcalm district of Quebec City.
