I just attended the Segal Production of La Sagouine. It is an amazing one woman show. The actress who plays the lead is the same actress that originated the role 40 years ago. Indeed she is a retired grit Senator! She gave an absolutely outstanding performance of this iconic Canadian play. The audience was spellbound.
At the reception after the play Antonine Maillet, the playwright, talked about how this was the first time the Acadian language was written down in this way.
I thoroughly enjoyed the evening and recommend you go and see this play.
