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.

OCTOBER 24TH: Tea & Tales by the Coalition of Muslim Women
An interactive and educational travelling show which employs art, entertainment and dialogue to build bridges of understanding between Muslim women and the larger community. Muslim women from diverse backgrounds who have made KW their home will be hosting a culture cafe. You can expect to have candid and meaningful conversations over a cup of traditional coffee or tea and treats from their country /culture of origin. Swap stories, ask questions, be part of each other’s life journeys.

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: Frog Song by Taylor Marie Graham and William Rowson
Frog Song is a fairy tale opera for children.

DECEMBER 19TH: Songwriters Roundtable with Julia Goudreault
An evening of songs and storytelling. Come to jam, tell, listen, or all three!
