    Play: "The Shoplifters" across the Lower Mainland, BC

    Morris Panych’s The Shoplifters stars Alma, a seasoned career shoplifter who prefers the five-finger discount over some lousy seniors’ day deal. But it’s not just an empty wallet that leads Alma to a life of petty crime – it’s also her strong convictions about social justice and economic equality.

    Play: "Mom's the Word" in London, ON

    Mom’s the Word was created out of a Saturday morning writers’ support group. Getting together to share their experiences, six women performers struck upon the idea to write about what they were going through as mothers trying to maintain their careers, their individual identities and their relationships with their partners. The result is an evening of hilarious stories, bittersweet monologues, poetic reflections and revelatory anecdotes. Touching tales of giving birth to a premature baby are balanced against comic, ribald rants on diaper soup; whispered, hesitant conversations about sex after children; and the desperate confessionals of the over-stressed.

    Play: "Impromptu on Nuns' Island" in Battleford, SK

    Impromptu on Nuns’ Island
    Comedy/Drama by Michael Tremblay, translated by Linda Gaboriou
    Directed by Donna Challis

    Synopsis: An opera diva, Patricia, meets her Waterloo singing Salome at the Opera Bastille in Paris.
    In an impromptu get-together in her Nuns’ Island penthouse, on the afternoon of her return from Europe, h
    ​er mother (a popular Montreal stage and television actress pushing 70), and her idealistic committed-to-new-work daughter goad her. What is the sense of an international career if your art doesn’t contribute to change (or at least to widespread pleasure and inspiration) in the society you live in?

    Play: "Daisy" in Long Beach, CA

    Based on true events, Daisy is a political drama that presents the moment in TV history that ushered in the age of negative advertising and forever changed how we elect our leaders. It also tells the more cynical tale of how a nation got led into war, distracted by the “packaging” of a seemingly peaceful U.S. president. Daisy explores the art and science of political manipulation, the forces at play on public consciousness in our mediated world, and the impact that fear has had on our democracy.
