Event description

Description

First-look theatre performances created by fierce women. Presented by Pat the Dog Theatre Creation at KWAG.

OCTOBER 10TH: Hope Op by Kristin Shepherd
Hope Op is an intelligent, heartfelt comedy about four middle-aged women who, tired of the way the world sees them and of the way they see themselves, decide to commit a crime together. Their self-discovery is funny, honest, and a little heartbreaking.

NOVEMBER 7TH: We Ran Wild by Deanna Kruger
Two elderly sisters are reunited after a long estrangement. Their rocky reunion is further complicated by a young Personal Support Worker. Set against the backdrop of the suburban sprawl that is rapidly overtaking rural spaces, We Ran Wild is an honest and often humorous look at women, aging, grief, and the limits of familial bonds.

NOVEMBER 21ST: Queer Spawn by Kira Myers-Guiden
a compilation of stories about growing up as a second generation queer spawn (lesbian born of lesbians). From the creator: “The piece strives to normalize my parents and I while acknowledging the differences (and homophobic) truths in our experience as a family. Queer Spawn is about claiming space that is too often taken up by the nuclear family and showcasing how great my moms are. With this piece, I hope to normalize my family while highlighting the micro-aggressions I hear in everyday conversation.”

DECEMBER 5TH: Ladies of the CNR by Kelly McIntosh, Baptiste Neis and Stacy Smith
Ladies of the CNR is a play inspired by the women of Stratford who worked as mechanical assistants at the Canadian National Railways locomotive repair shops during WWII. The play begins in 1964 when Kitty, Jean, and Clara sneak into the empty train repair shops, their former employ during World War II. There, they relive challenges of life on the Homefront and the world of Big Engines that changed their lives forever.

DECEMBER 12TH: White Wedding by Taylor Marie Graham
White Wedding is a bizarre comedy that explores those inevitable life questions that come up after the anticipation of a wedding is over. Who are we really? And what is the point of it all? Synopsis: Lisa and her brilliantly analytical mind are having trouble understanding why we all spend so much time celebrating painful emotions like love. Will attending her childhood best friend's wedding help clear things up? Maybe she should just hide upstairs.

DECEMBER 19TH: Songwriters Round, hosted by Julia Appleton Julia Appleton is a local singer-songwriter and is thrilled to be bringing the "Nashville Songwriter's Round" to KW! This curated evening will be filled with original songs from a variety of local artists and the stories behind them. At the end of the performance, there will be a Q&A with the writers to learn more about the songwriting process.
