The Guid Sisters: A Translation of Les Belles-Soeurs Into Modern Scots

Front Cover
Exile Editions, Ltd., 2000 - Drama - 121 pages
This classic play has been translated before, but only into a pallid approximation of the original joual. Scots, however, is an energetic and earthy vernacular with a distinctive sound system equal to joual. The play, a landmark in Canadian theatre, can now be truly appreciated in this superb translation, just as audiences in Glasgow and Moscow have learned to laugh with these ladies.
