About the Play:

La Duchesse de Langeais and Other Plays is a collection of short plays by Michel Tremblay — Quebec's best known playwright.

The collection includes:
La Duchesse de Langeais (English version of La duchesse de Langeais) As one critic put it: "…the Duchesse de Langeais embodies, in his own extreme way, the alienation of the Québec male." (Cast: 1 man);
Berthe, Johnny Mangano and his Astonishing Dogs et Gloria Star (English version of Trois Petits Tours) The play shows three views of life at the seedy, but glitzy, Coconut Inn. (Cast: 8 women, 4 men); and
Surprise! Surprise! A surprise party organized by phone turns into a headache when the wrong Madeleine is invited to the birthday celebration. Not only is she not the birthday girl, she's the "right" Madeleine’s sworn enemy! (Cast: 3 women)

What people say:

"The plight of the Duchesse mirrors the plight of a society." — Canadian Literature
