International Women’s Week Cabaret of Monologues: Super Women!

Stories will focus on extraordinary women or ordinary women who have done incredible things! A diverse line-up of monologues by Canadian playwrights, performed by a talented cast. It gives voice to women of all backgrounds and covers topics from the hilarious to the inspiring.  Some of the monologues do contain strong language.

At the Gate by Sandra Drag
Performed by Elena Anciro
A remarkable woman’s tale of wrestling a family away from a horrific car accident. Poetic and ambiguous, the story is related with increasing difficulty, until the truth unfolds.

Of Heart and Tree by Christine Rodriguez
Performed by Shanley Jardine
A mother attempts to make sense of her autistic son through this heart-wrenching story.

Zelda with a Z, by Frances Koncan
Performed by Kim Kakegamic
The audience becomes the audience of a talk show! Zelda is an exuberant and flustered host as she talks to us about her life with writer F. Scott Fitzgerald.

Glory Bound by Scott Douglas
Performed by Samantha Walters
A comic book come to life! Glory Girl attempts to escape her captors, but is she really bound against her will?

Loretta by Step Taylor
Performed by Lorraine James
Loretta lies to her drug addict son about losing her job so that he can focus on passing his exams and graduating, but the jig is up.

An Inheritance by Jennica Grienke
Performed by Liz Whitbread
A girl struggling with the death of her mother and a new understanding of her father. A young woman angry with God, and faced with a horrifying decision. Meet Ida, reliving her trauma in the hopes of healing before it’s too late.

John Fubbister (also known as Isobel Gun) by Sandy Klowak
Performed by Mallory James
They said that the gruelling work of a fur trader in the wilds of Rupert’s Land would break a European woman like a twig. Not if Isobel Gunn has anything to say about it.

Mutated by Carly Pokoradi
Performed by Jenna Jenna Leanne Hill
Travel the world! Go on adventures! Bea’s exciting life plans are put on hold when she’s faced with a life-altering situation.

Urban Nun by Dave Carley

Brenda McLean, Spenser Payne, Alissa Watson and Colin D. Connor

Trapped overnight in the alleys of 1880's London, three lovely Bouffon quest for the salvation of their souls while outrunning the dangers of Jack the Ripper!
Three little whores, shivering with fright, seek a cosy doorway in the middle of the night. Jack's knife flashes, then there's but one, and the last one's the ripest for Jack's idea of fun.
