World Premiere co-production with Tableau D’Hôte Theatre
Directed by Amanda Kellock
May 20-31 2020
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.
