Les Plaisantins by Louise Moyes and Paul Rowe

The Plaisantins is a play in the commedia del’arte style, a physical, funny, and imaginative interpretation of the lives of fishermen, soldiers, clergy and historical figures from “Plaisance”, the original French colony now known as Placentia. A delightful and educational portrayal of the French history of the Avalon peninsula, which played all summer on Signal Hill and toured St. John’s schools in the fall of 2004. More information available upon request. Presented by the Francophone Association of St. John’s.
