Theatre Out of the Shadows
July 16 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm
From Sappho to Stein and a nod to Okuni Kabuki we present classical works by women who challenged the norms with creativity.Year three of presenting classical plays by women in unusual spaces. Merging three very different playwrights who shared similar struggles becoming artists in their own right. From the controversial works of Sappho who took inspiration from her male and female lovers, to Okuni’s gender-bending new wave of Japanese theatre called Kabuki, to Stein’s outrageous take on female empowerment, this festival promises to deliver the classics like never before. Presented at Unionville’s iconic Varley Art Gallery of Markham, the three plays will unravel throughout the space. Which character will you follow, which character will you relate to, and which character will you end up with? There’s only one way to find out.
