Evangeline: a new play about Hurricane Katrina

La Boca Theater | Two years after Hurricane Katrina dumped devastation and mass-displacement on the Big Easy AND 250 years since the expulsion of the Acadian colony from Nova Scotia sent the first Cajuns to the Louisiana bayous AND 500 years since the slave trade began shipping millions of West Africans to the mouth of the Mississippi, the search for home is still not over. Our original play, Evangeline, tells the true story of exile in America, through shadow puppetry, African dance, Henry Wadsworth Longfellow's epic poem, Evangeline: A Tale of Acadie, and real words from hurricane survivors.
