An Anglophone is Coming to Dinner (print)

The play, Un Anglophone Vient Souper, written by a little-known Quebec playwright, has been translated into English by Jim Bob himself, except for “the swearin'” which he decided sounded better in the original French. Colliding worlds of culture and language are served up Texas style in this social satire of a Québécois family playing host to a bewildered, Ontario-born English professor.

"Funny, though provoking, and multi layered..." —Diahann Nadeau, The Sherbrooke Record

"...full of clever mispronunciations, word play, and digs at Quebec society... [Anglophone] grabbed the audience and kept them laughing all the way through." —Wendy Denman, The Stanstead Journal
