THY WOMAN’S WEEDS | MAY 20 – 31
A CO-PRODUCTION WITH REPERCUSSION THEATRE
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.

The play’s the legacy
Third in a series of blog posts by Apprentice Artistic Director Camilla Fitzgibbon as part of the Conseil des arts de Montréal’s DemART-Mtl program
“At some point during the workshop it suddenly strikes me what Canadian theatre is (to me). This piece is it: the reflection of an identity and a diversity of identities shaped by the experience of living here. And, despite its cultural specificity, it speaks to a commonality of circumstances that I finding myself intimately relating to in this layering of nations upon nations.”
