Presented by Repercussion Theatre, developed in collaboration with Playwrights’ Workshop Montréal

Featuring new work inspired by/dialoguing with/that talks back to Shakespeare:

Thy Woman’s Weeds by Erin Shields
Cockroach by Jeff Ho

Both plays are at different stages of development and will be evolving up until (and possibly throughout) the reading series.

For now the plays could be described as follows:

Thy Woman’s Weeds by Governor General Award winning playwright Erin Shields, is a theatrical exploration of what it means to be a woman working with Shakespeare today, and features 7 strong female performers.

Cockroach by performer-playwright and Repercussion alumnus Jeff Ho, is a solo piece about his very personal relationship to language, culture, trauma, and the canon.
