2017-2018 Season

The Virgin, The Whore and Something In Between

The Madonna-whore complex, first identified by Sigmund Freud, is said to develop in men who see women as either saintly Madonnas or debased prostitutes. In sexual politics the view of women as either Madonnas or whores limits women's sexual expression, offering two mutually exclusive ways to construct a sexual identity.While our season title is tongue-in-cheek, it does offer a clever umbrella under which to gather three plays that explore women's identities in regards to sexuality,religion and the Christian/ Catholic morality of the societies in which they have been raised.

DO THIS IN MEMORY OF ME

(World Premiere of a New Work)

By Cat Walsh with French Translation by Manon Beaudoin

Co-production with L’UniThéâtre | March 13- 25, 2018 in La Cité Francophone

Montreal, 1963- the world is on a precipice of major change in the fields of science, civil rights and women’s liberation.  Twelve-year-old Genevieve, the only girl in her large religious family, wants nothing more than to be an altar server at her church.  Father Paul tells her that girls are strictly not allowed - so Genevieve prays to God to change his mind.  When star altar boy Martin disappears on his way home from school, Genevieve wonders if her prayers have been answered - in the most terrible way. 

Featuring Brian Dooley, Steve Jodoin, Nicole St. Martin, | Directed by Trevor Schmidt
