Thy Woman’s Weeds

by Erin Shields

World Premiere co-production with Tableau D’Hôte Theatre

Directed by Amanda Kellock

Developed in collaboration with Playwrights Workshop Montréal

Thy Woman’s Weeds is a fierce, subversive new work by one of Canada’s leading playwrights that boldly challenges and explores what it means to be a woman working with Shakespeare today. Driven by a chorus of women who are grappling with their relationship to Shakespeare, it begs the questions : Why do it? If we do it, how do we do it? How do we deal with the inherent gender discrepancies? The chorus invokes scenes in different parts of the theatre, at all parts of the process: in a rehearsal hall, in a dressing room, in the audience, and in the play itself.

In light of the ongoing COVID-19 crisis, the upcoming world premiere of Thy Woman’s Weeds, has been postponed.

Originally slated to premiere 20-31 May 2020, Thy Woman’s Weeds will make its debut at such a time as is safe for both audiences and performers. Both Repercussion Theatre and Tableau d’Hôte are immensely excited to present this project, and to continue working with the amazing #TWW team:
