Abstract: This thesis examines two experimental feminist theatrical works, Les Fees ont soif and La Nef des sorcieres, produced in the twilight of the Quiet Revolution in Quebec. This was a period marked by the secularization of society as well as profound social reforms. These plays reflect and contribute to both the feminist discourse of the 1970s as well as the trend of theatrical experimentation going on in Quebec at the time. I first situate these plays in their historical and theoretical context, and then study the ways in which they retain significance today. The authors of these plays focus on the body as a means for achieving a female prise de parole. For Denise Boucher, author of Les Fees, this insistence on the body manifests itself in a parallel representation of physical and symbolic violence. In La Nef, a collective piece consisting of eight discrete monologues, the authors address difference through individual identity issues. I focus on three monologues where the authors specifically address the issues of age, class, and sexuality, in ways which echo the late 20th century move from feminism to feminisms.
