Gaspard et fil$ is a comedy inspired by Monique Proulx's novel  Bennie et fils. Forty-year-old Claude Chuinard and his father Gaspard (respectively Gaston Lepage and Jacques Godin, the stenographer and inspector from Being at Home with Claude), have an uneasy truce since the death of their mother/wife 11 years previously. They travel from Montreal to New York and finally to Venezuela in search of a missing lottery ticket, while their mutual dislike for one another continues unabated.

Roy plays a very small non-speaking role. Accompanied by some avant garde music, he helps pull some large sheets of clear perspex onto the stage, then an artist squirts paint onto the plastic from tubes in his gloves - kind of Jackson Pollock meets Minority Report! As the captures show, his offstage costume is even more exotic than his onstage one.

Perhaps one for the serious Roy completist only.
