BOOK SYNOPSIS
Twenty years ago, young Louisiana French-speakers first came together to stage plays written by themselves. Sustained by a love of the French language and their Francophone heritage, their theatrical productions did much to validate their mother tongue and their culture

The plays assembled in the collection compiled by May G. Waggoner, a member of the Modern Language Department at the University of Louisiana, constitute the most notable works staged during Louisiana's French cultural renaissance. These plays include Jean L 'Ours et la fille du roi; Martin Weber, constable; Mille mis--†â€™Ãƒâ€ Ã¢â‚¬â„¢--¢â‚¬Â ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢--†â€™ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã…¡--¢â‚'ƒâ€šÃ‚¨res: Laissant le bon temps rouler en Louisiane; Hallo, cher, Grand-M'Man's fine, an y'all?; La table des veuves; La f--†â€™Ãƒâ€ Ã¢â‚¬â„¢--¢â‚¬Â ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢--†â€™ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã…¡--¢â‚'ƒâ€šÃ‚ªte --†â€™Ãƒâ€ Ã¢â‚¬â„¢--¢â‚¬Â ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢--†â€™ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã…¡--¢â‚'ƒâ€šÃ‚  Clomaire; Le charivari; Grosbecs; Martin Weber et les Marais Bouleurs; Les Attakapas; La derni--†â€™Ãƒâ€ Ã¢â‚¬â„¢--¢â‚¬Â ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢--†â€™ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã…¡--¢â‚'ƒâ€šÃ‚¨re quilte; Messieurs, mesdames et mes chers amis: une pi--†â€™Ãƒâ€ Ã¢â‚¬â„¢--¢â‚¬Â ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢--†â€™ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã…¡--¢â‚'ƒâ€šÃ‚¨ce en fran--†â€™Ãƒâ€ Ã¢â‚¬â„¢--¢â‚¬Â ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢--†â€™ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã…¡--¢â‚'ƒâ€šÃ‚§ais cadien sur la vie de Dudley J.
