Marie Joseph Angélique, an enslaved Black woman, was accused, tried and hanged for setting fire to Montréal in 1734. The late Lorena Gale’s award-winning 1998 classic play draws a line from Canada’s often ignored history of slavery to contemporary struggles with systemic racism and oppression. Inspired by historical transcripts from the infamous trial, Angélique is a moving account of Black Canadian history beyond the Underground Railroad.
