OPIA: a series of two short plays

oin us Halloween weekend at the Artscape Wychwood Barns (601 Christie Street, Toronto, ON) for the debut series of The Muddy Mary Project!

Featuring--

MY NIGHTMARES WEAR WHITE

This is a play about a girl who started at the end and is stuck in the middle. This is a play about me and you and just a few of us. This is a play about waiting rooms, needles, and walking in slanted lines. This is a play about waking up and never sleeping. This is a play about listening and screaming and holding hands and asking too many questions. This is a play about breathing slowly to stay alive. This is a play about counting to ten a thousand times and never stopping. This is not a play about the beginning or the end. This is a play about the middle.

AND

FINDING TEMPERANCE

Picture this: four young girls; one smart, one scared, one shtick, and one slut, conquering the world one slumber party at a time. There’s just one problem… conquering the world (and mainly just, like, living) turns out to be much harder than expected given the whole ‘having a vagina’ thing that plagues each of them individually. Creating a safe haven for themselves in the nearby woods, the girls find solace in the story of Temperance Lloyd and her three friends, Mary, Ann and Susannah (the last women hanged for witchcraft in England). As time goes by, Amy, Suze, Kim and Georgia band together (and fall apart) Now & Then style, fanning the fire of each other’s happiest times and most horrific tragedy. All the while, the essence of Temperance lurks; reminding the girls that true wickedness has perhaps been hiding just beyond the branches of their forest-y fortress all along.

Collaboratively Created by: Hannah Briggs, Sarah Dennison, Jackie Fauteux, Nicole Smith, Cleo Vaillancourt & Jessica Watkin

Directed by: Sarah Dennison & Hannah Briggs
