Angélique, written by Black Canadian playwright, the late Lorena Gale, is based on true events chronicling the life of Marie Joseph Angélique; an enslaved Black woman who was publicly executed for having allegedly set fire to Montréal in 1734.
After playing to sold-out audiences in 2017, BTW commissioned the French translation of Angélique by translator Mishka Lavigne in order to bring this important Black Canadian play to a Francophone audience.
Presented in association with Tableau D'Hôte Theatre, this stage reading will take place on December 15, 2018 at the Centre du Théâtre D'Aujourd'hui. For tickets, click here.
