Evangeline the Second


At the age of 80, Evangeline is uprooted from her beloved Acadia and sent to Montreal to live with her son and daughter-in-law.

One day, in a city park, she encounters three other ‘exiles’. Confessions, revelations and personal entanglements ensue in a play that passionately affirms the human dignity and right to self-determination of the elderly and the dispossessed.
