and other Old French plays
Greenwood Follies & Other Old French Plays featured the world premiere of three 13th century comedies translated by John DuVal, a nationally acclaimed poet and French scholar who was awarded an NEA grant for his research and translation of Adam de la Halle’s Greenwood Follies, one of the readings in this festival. The two other plays read were The Miracle of Theophile, and an excerpt from The Play of Adam. Published as the collection “From Adam to Adam: Seven Old French Plays”, these English translations of a variety of medieval street drama sparkle with humor and poignancy and are wonderfully accessible to a modern audience. John DuVal honored the event by introducing these plays.
