French play at the Centre culturel Frontenac of Kingston: Les Fridolinades

Join us on Friday, April 15th at 8 pm, in the Octave Theatre of the Centre culturel Frontenac, located at 711 Dalton Avenue to see the french play Les Fridolinades, a co-production with Ottawa’s Théâtre la Catapulte and the Théâtre Français de Toronto. Playwright Gratien Gélinas’s 1937 creation Fridolin is a Quebec folk hero, a boy in a tricolour Canadiens hockey sweater who isn’t afraid to speak his mind about his family or the world around him. Initially a figure on radio played by Gélinas himself, Fridolin inspired a series of sketches called Les Fridolinades. This theatrical-comedy takes a glimpse in Canadian life from 1937 to 1946 and brings up themes still central and relevant to today’s Québécois drama. If you know anything about Québécois drama or are curious to learn more, Les Fridolinades promises to be a very pleasant eye-opener.
