Le Parapluie (The Umbrella) is an uplifting story of the relationship between an umbrella and its owner. Through this exquisite tale of love, loyalty and devotion, we learn that while someone might be struggling, flawed, or even broken, they still have value and deserve to be loved. During a storm, our heroes suffer damage—but love prevails!

The show is based on the book written and illustrated by Judd Palmer, shortlisted for Canada’s Governor General’s Award for Children’s Literature in 2012.
