Everybody’s Welles, a multi-media, solo performance by co-writer/director, Patrice Dubois, about a meek Quebecois film scholar whose life and career are altered by his experience of Welles’s films. It is a piece of theatre that takes up the recurring themes in Welles’s life and œuvre, notably the student/teacher relationship and the search for one’s individual identity within greater society. One could also say that this production draws a portrait of American society from 1915, the year of Welles’s birth, until today. Everybody’s Welles does not pretend to be a definite biography of Orson Welles but rather a theatre docudrama, an evocative homage to Welles where fact and fiction blur.


Patrice Dubois & Martin Labrecque


«  We are actor and lighting designer, respectively. And even though our approaches to playwrighting and views of Welles may vary, our different crafts are complementary. Simply stated, producing this theatrical piece required us to become, in a way,  « Wellesian » with Welles : That is to say, multi-faceted, politicized, highly artistic and most importantly, impassioned. »


EVERYBODY’S WELLES POUR TOUS was created by THÉÂTRE PàP in 2003, at Espace GO. The show was invited to the 21th edition of Francophonies, in Limousin, in 2004, before undertaking a tour throughout Quebec.



An absolutely incredible piece of research…

A well-documented, amusing, and touching portrait of a visionary who revolutionized every media that he touched.

Patrice Dubois and Martin Labrecque have drawn a wonderful portrait of Orson Welles while at the same time depicting a modern man.

Patrice Dubois is talented!

Martin Labrecque creates extraordinary ambiances – there are fabulous Chinese shadow puppets.

It’s touching, it’s very well done.

An intelligent, inventive, moving, and superbly acted show.

Orson Welles devotees will find no fault with this production.
