3. Le résumé
« From the late 1970s through the early 1990s, the plays of Marie Laberge have dramatized the changing role of the family in Quebec society. From domestic melodramas depicting the failure of the traditional Quebec family to cathartic plays that suggest the possibility of redifining the family, Laberge’s theater has reflected the feminist critique of gender roles within patriarchal institutions. Just as the nationalist politics of the independence movement inspired the nouveau théâtre québécois beginning in the late 1960s, so the sexual politics of the feminist movement gave rise to a distinctive quebec théâtre de femmes in the mid-1970s. »
