I’ve been working on an amazing show over the past few weeks: The Penelopiad, by Margaret Atwood. I’m assistant stage manager for the production. It’s a very powerful play, though maybe not the most uplifting piece. Our production with KWLT is the Canadian amateur premiere, which is exciting.
The cast is 13 women, which creates a really interesting dynamic. Rehearsals so far have been fun, despite the sometimes draining subject matter. The actresses working on the show are amazing.
I’m looking forward to the coming weeks as things start to really gel. The production goes up in September. Keep an eye out for ticket information as it becomes available!
