#CdnCult Times; Volume 2, Edition 4


This week’s edition applies a feminist lense to the theatre.

Our Geographic Correspondents have approached the issue head-on in their bi-weekly cross-country conversation. Adrienne Wong, SpiderWebShow Head ResearcherExperiments connects her latest work to being a mother. Playwright and Parliamentary Assistant Darrah Teitel examines gender roles and expectations in Michael Healey’s Parliament-set play Proud.

Cumulatively these articles point to an evolving understanding of feminism that adapts to multiple identities; a humanist insight into the term that advocates for equality in the context of mutable roles in the theatre and society at large.
