One night in the Promised Land of the North of the Americas, at the centre of a fabulous vortex, four women--Laure Conan, Germaine Guevremont, Gabrielle Roy and Anne Hebert--meet, and perform six tableaux. Onstage, the women talk and gallop, they sit and rock; they descend from the heavens like angels, they menstruate, they sing; they bake bread, they eat, they say Mass; they trade secrets, recite poetry, share their hopes and fears, their dreams and private terrors; they look into history, decide to collaborate, they write; they become hens, they support and give birth to each other--and to all women everywhere. "Saga of the Wet Hens" is Jovette Marchessault's first full-length play and a major poetic dramatic literary work.
