In Sainte-Carmen of the Main, Carmen--a character who appeared previously in Forever Yours, Marie-Lou--returns to the Rod o from Nashville, where she has been sent to "improve her technique" in yodelling. But not only does she improve her technique, she also begins to write her own songs whose lyrics speak directly to the people about their problems, in words they understand. This challenging and profound play poses the question: "It's fine to wake people up, but once they're awake, what do you do with them?"

Praise For…

An absolutely fascinating gesture by a powerful playwright.
