Angélique (print) by Lorena Gale

"And in seventeen thirty-four a Negro slave set fire to the City of Montreal and was hanged..."

With this bald statement of history as a basis, Lorena Gale constructs a vivid portrait of a time when captive people had no say in the outcome of their lives.

Angélique (print)

In the character of Angélique, Gale gives us a woman brave enough to try and shatter her bonds. A rich, poetic evocation of a graceful yet cruel time—a time with "civilized" people still bought and sold slaves.

"Gale has fashioned 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." —Martin Morrow, Calgary Herald

"...a dynamic and emotionally powerful theatrical experience." —Jason Zinoman, Time Out New York
