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.


BONNIE & CLYDE

SLUT

(Alberta Premiere)

by Brenda McFarlane  

April 5 – 14, 2018 | PCL Studio, ATB Financial Arts Barns    

Matilda is a woman who gives of herself freely.  So freely in fact, that the senior citizens from the complex next door have her arrested for running a brothel. During an endless night of booking at the police station, Matilda runs a gamut of emotions: joy, regret, remorse, anger, despair and love.  Brenda McFarlane’s witty and fast paced play pries apart social stereotypes and stigmas in an insightful, light-hearted and comic examination of love and sex.

Featuring Michelle Todd | Directed by Trevor Schmidt
