The descent into business revolves around Toussaint Brodeur, merchant and fly breeder, who often found himself in Fred Pellerin’s stories without ever being the star.
The character was portrayed by Luc Picard in two film adaptations of Fred Pellerin’s fairy tales – baby and Esimesac – and more recently by Émile Proulx-Cloutier in film The time wasterreleased last year.

The descent into business will be presented in a dozen cities across the province this fall before stopping at the Grand Théâtre de Québec on December 20-23.
In January, Fred Pellerin will transport his show to France for a series of seven performances. It will eventually be shown in Montreal at the Théâtre Maisonneuve from June 1stah until March 4th.
