Dignam Gallery @ the Women's Art Association
As our first theatrical exploration, we presented the humorous one-act “Ibsen’s Ghost” by J.M. Barrie. This short play was a satire of Henrik Ibsen’s drama and style, and outlined what Barrie imagined would happen after the death of Hedda Gabbler.
The performance day consisted of two shows with lively and supportive audiences who got to watch our experiment in adaptation, amalgamation and creation. We staged not one, but two versions of Barrie's play, side by side, and with two separate casts. The Dignam Gallery provided us with the perfect setting for the play with two matching fire places and settees.
All the money raised from this production will go towards our creation project scheduled for Oct/Nov 2014.
A big thank you to everyone who came out to support us and share in this exciting experience! As well, a very special thank you to the Women's Art Association of Canada who generously provided us with space, enthusiasm, counsel and connections to make our first fundraiser the success that it was.
