Voices From France is the result of a rich collaboration between The Banff Centre, the Societé des auteurs et compositeurs dramatiques, supported by the French Embassy in Canada, and the Maison Antoine Vitez in France, and features English translations of five French contemporary plays. The exchange that begins at The Banff Centre between a playwright and a translator continues between the reader and the text, and the actor and the audience.
