George Joseph Smith was an English serial killer who killed many women by drowning them in a bathtub, but not before they took out life insurance with Smith as the sole beneficiary. Vertigo Theatre’s The Drowning Girls is a play conceived by Beth Graham, Charlie Tomlinson and Daniela Vlaskalic that is based on the real-life serial killer but told mostly from the point of view of the victims. It explores how Smith managed to fleece these women and almost get away with it. [click to continue…]

My first run in with Ellen Doty was a couple of years ago as she was about to get on-stage to sing during a Downtown Calgary lunch-time performance concert outside of Monogram Coffee – little did I know that there would be much more Miss Doty in my life and that I would have amazing opportunities pop up to work with her and showcase her fantastic personal style. Also, getting to know her during these various projects has been a lovely pleasure as well. [click to continue…]

Last night, I had joy of going to the opening night of When One Door Closes at Theatre Junction GRAND. It’s a collaboration between directors Yaron Lifschitz and Libby McDonnell,  Circa and La Boîte Theatre Company in Australia.

The basis for the show was three iconic female characters from Ibsen and Strindberg works – Hedda, Nora and Julie – meet at the end of their plays in a parallel world. These women were originally written by men to live within the gender-normative limits of their lives, while trying to escape both their lives and the men within them. [click to continue…]
