written & performed by Abby Page
The new one-woman show by acclaimed Vermont performer, Abby Paige, is an autobiographical exploration of ancestry, identity, and storytelling.
An American with French-Canadian roots immigrates to Canada, a century after her great-grandparents immigrated in the opposite direction.
She has questions:
- What does “francophone” mean?
- What’s the deal with the queen?
- Why is Jack Kerouac the only Franco-American anyone’s ever heard of?
- Is Céline Dion a witch?
With this comedic, bilingual one-woman show, writer and performer Abby Paige looks for answers, crossing the borders between English and French, the past and the present, the living and the dead, history (L’Histoire) and stories (les histoires).
Les Filles Du Quoi plays 7:30pm Thu/Fri/Sat; and 2pm Sun August 20–30, 2020
