about

Jacques Plante & the Parkdale Knitting League

“Plante’s life great theatre.” — Calgary Herald

“Phantom of the crease: Jacques Plante read the classics and penned love poems to his wife; now a stage play captures the mysterious life of an eccentric hockey pioneer.” — The Montreal Gazette

He was the greatest hockey goalie of his time. A man who defied the code of the game that branded any goalie who wore a mask as a coward. She was a lonely Toronto housewife trapped in an unfulfilled marriage, who fell in love with the Montreal Canadiens icon because they shared a mutual love  — knitting.

Jacques Plante & the Parkdale Knitting League tells the story of one of sport’s most innovative and intriguing  characters, and the woman whose love was expressed only in heartfelt letters written over a 20-year period.

Until Plante was traded to Toronto and was now within her actual reach.

A dramatic play that is also full of humor, Jacques Plante & the Parkdale Knitting League combines true material about the hockey star’s life (he was indeed a passionate knitter) with the fictional tale of Violet Henderson, a simple woman who wants more passion in her life —  and looks for it in the most unusual place.

The winner of the Canadian National Playwriting Competition and the CBC Radio/Quebec Playwrights Drama Federation Award, Jacques Plante & the Parkdale Knitting League has had professional and amateur productions.

A story that both men and women find compelling, Jacques Plante & the Parkdale Knitting League is a full-length one-act play suitable for the entire family.
