PARDON MY FRENCH! - City Theater, Biddeford, ME - November 3
Saturday, November 3 - 8:00pm
An original play with music Join Susan Poulin as she sets out on the sometimes humorous, sometimes treacherous journey to reconnect with her Franco-American heritage. Her roller coaster ride of self-discovery leads her to some surprising places. From the origins of Franco-American Spaghetti to the textile mills of Skowhegan, from logging camps on the Canadian border to being hypnotized to find the French in her head, Susan is determined to reclaim her first language. In the process, discovers a whole lot more.
Pardon My French! explores a search for identity familiar to all, addressing the pain and rewards of coming to terms with ones' own cultural identity, Franco or otherwise.
Tickets are $20 for adults and $15 for students and seniors.
