Boucher, Denise (1935–)

Canadian playwright. Born Dec 12, 1935, in Victoriaville, Quebec, Canada.

Wrote the play Les Fées ont Soif (1978, trans. as The Fairies are Thirsty, 1982), which was banned from a Montreal theater for its allegedly blasphemous representation of the Virgin Mary (Boucher was attacking the idealization of women); also wrote Cyprine: Essaicollage Pour Etre Une Femme (1978) and (with Madeleine Gagnon) Retailles (1978).
