The Doorman of Windsor Station



Julie Vincent and Hugh Hazelton


Playwrights Canada Press

The mirrored realities of Montevideo in 1973 and Montreal in 2005 fuse together in a time-travelling story about one man who escaped a harrowing coup d’état in order to find a better life, but instead finds further struggles as an immigrant.

Francisco will forever be haunted by the sight of his best friend Juan lying on the floor of a train station, pierced by five bullets. He’ll remember that sight as he flees the political uprising in Uruguay that night. He’ll remember when he’s holding a dying homeless man in Windsor Station in Montreal eight months later. He’ll remember when he’s a successful architect. He’ll remember when he’s having an affair with a Québécoise pianist named Claire. He’ll remember when he’s much older, a vagrant sleeping in a café that was once part of Windsor Station, where he meets his son, an activist in the student strikes in Quebec.

As he tries for a better life, Francisco’s past keeps finding him, until it blurs with the present in a series of hallucinations, challenging him to reclaim his identity and his rights.
