Six of his plays were published. He staged plays and musical performances for many French and English speaking companies, in the Quebec province and elsewhere in the world. The Sirius on Earth opera was staged by him at London and Mademoiselle Eileen Fontenot pour les dix sous de liberté, was staged at Montreal for the Théâtre d’Aujourd’hui.
