Raucous, reckless, and rude, the women of Les Belles Soeurs shamelessly share their most secret hopes and fears, complain stridently about their friends and relatives, and fantasize wistfully about escaping the misogynist drudgery of their lives. With the premiere of this play in 1968, Joual, the distinctive QuEbec vernacular, was legitimized, and Tremblay became "the father of the QuEbEcois language."
