About the Plays:

The anthology Voices From France is the result of a rich collaboration between The Banff Centre, the Societé des auteurs et compositeurs dramatiques, supported by the French Embassy in Canada, and the Maison Antoine Vitez in France, and features English translations of five French contemporary plays. The exchange that begins at The Banff Centre between a playwright and a translator continues between the reader and the text, and the actor and the audience.

Plays includes Night Zoo by Michel Azama (translated by Linda Gaboriau), Baby Stain by Koffi Kwahulé (translated by David Hormel), The Last Morning by José Pliya (translated by Maureen LaBonté), Mathilde by Véronique Olmi (translated by Morwyn Brebner), and The Lighthouse by Timothée de Fombelle (translated by Don Hannah, based on a line translation by Glenn Nicholls).
