Lane's Week, April 28, 2013

This Week in The Nation's Theatre
by Chris Lane

Théâtre en français: 
This week brought out a pair of season announcements from French-language theatre companies. Montreal’s Compagnie Jean-Duceppe announced their upcoming season, which includes a couple well-known translated plays, Les Liaisons dangereuses and La Vénus au vison, alongside the home-grown La traversée de la mer intérieure, to name a few. Quebec City's Théâtre Premier Acte announced a lineup of nine plays from a selection of the city’s small-scale theatre groups. I recommend broadening your horizons and checking out what French-language theatre has to offer across the country. And if your French isn’t great, it can still be a fun to practice.

Happy birthday William Shakespeare: 
Funnily enough, both his birthday and deathday are on the same day, April 23 (or at least that’s our best guess; his exact birthday is unknown).
