NAC English Theatre Presentation

  • By Lorena Gale
  • Director Mike Payette

Approx. 1 hour  and  30 minutes  with intermission

On a warm spring day in 1734, “troublesome slave” Marie-Joseph Angélique set fire to the city of Montreal. Or so the story goes. With dreams of escaping the false safety of domestic servitude in New France for freedom in New England, Angélique was instead condemned for the crime. But was she truly guilty? From playwright Lorena Gale, Angélique weaves seamlessly between historical and contemporary times, speaking to us through the flames with an urgent message from the past to our own time.

A spare but powerful tale that thrusts the indignities of slavery and the stupidity of racism out of the murky 18th century and into the here and now."
