LEWISTON — Comedienne Susan Poulin returns to the Franco Center with “Pardon My French” at 7:30 p.m., on Saturday, Feb. 28.

In the land of hyphenated identity, Susan Poulin sets out on the sometimes- humorous, sometimes-treacherous path to reconnect with her Franco-American heritage. Her rollercoaster ride of self-discovery leads her to some surprising places.

From the origins of Franco-American Spaghetti to the textile mills of Skowhegan, from logging camps on the Canadian border to being hypnotized to find the French in her head, Susan is determined to reclaim her first language and in the process reclaims a whole lot more. She’s doing the assimilation samba and it’s not as easy as it looks.

The single ticket price for “Pardon My French” is $15. All proceeds to benefit the Franco Center.
