Description

The nineteenth-century Southern writer (George Washington Cable) who wrote the stories on which this play is based was born in New Orleans, and the racial, ethnic, and cultural diversity of that great city impregnates all his work, and gives him a cast of eccentric and memorable characters worthy of Dickens. Dramatist Frank J. Morlock centers the action of his play around the Café des Exilés in the 1820s, and the square in front of it where all sorts of folks mix together. This setting gives a sort of unity to the actions of Cable's interesting characters--Anglo, French, Spanish, Indian, and Black--who brush against each other and sometimes intersect and interact. The result is a highly entertaining drama of the Old South--with a French accent!
