Sisters : a play by Wendy Lill( )

3 editions published in 1991 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Sisters is a tough, uncompromising look at a convent-run Native residential school. While the play chronicles in graphic detail the by now well documented agenda of cultural genocide which motivated the establishment of Native residential schools in Canada, the daring triumph of this play is that it reveals the far less well documented cultural infrastructure and values of the society which created those schools--the church and the state of white, colonial, paternalist Canada

Of special interest are Isobel's former neighbours, whom she begins to suffer along with during their dark private experiences. Will she finally get the peace she's been yearning for? One of Judith Thompson's most enduring plays, Lion in the Streets looks at the inner turmoil of ordinary people and the ways in which they cope

La Sagouine by Antonine Maillet( )

in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In La Sagouine, Maillet first gave written form to the language of Acadie, a language which, she says, has been "distorted by the climate and sharpened by the sea; by the salty air in the larynx and the obsessive beating of the waves in the cars." Her scrubwoman gave disenfranchised Acadians an authentic voice and established Maillet as a writer of international stature." "In this new translation, Wayne Grady brings out the cultural richness of La Sagouine's speech as well as the old scrubwoman's strength of character and irrepressible humour."--Jacket
