Angels and Anger
Five Acadian PlaysBook - 2003
Angels and Anger is the first anthology of contemporary Acadian plays translated into English. Includes playwrights such as Hermenegilde Chiasson, Laval Goupil, and Gracia Couturier. Political, social and aesthetic questions are explored in Alienor and Dark Owl, or The Renegade Angel, while My Husband's an Angel is a quirky full-length monologue, another quintessential Acadian form. Theatre for young audiences is also represented by Chiasson's play for teens, Cape Enrage , as well as Ivan Van Hecke's adaptation of a Nova Scotian children's story Twelve Strands of Wool.
