Colin Higgins' classic dark comedy proves once and for all that love and devotion knows no boundaries. The story is about Harold, the suicidal 19 year old boy who finally learns how to truly live and love when he meets up with that delightfully wacky octogenarian, Maude.

Harold and Maude originally began as Higgins' project for UCLA film school, and resulting feature starring Bud Cort and Ruth Gordon quickly became an underground favourite. Higgins subsequently wrote the stage adaptation, and the play has appeared in theatres across the country and in Europe; it opened Broadway during the 1980-81 season, directed by Bobby Lewis. Colin Higgins died in 1988, at the age of 47, from AIDS complications.

Roy’s first paid acting job following 4 years of study at the National Theatre School of Canada was with a new troupe founded in 1986 by Viola Léger, famous for her role in Maillet's 'La Sagouine'. Its first production was Harold and Maude, which went on tour in Acadie on the eastern seaboard of Canada. The company gave some 50 performances for audiences numbering more than 10,000.
