Dear friends, patrons and theatre goers,
Our production of my play Counting Aloud was seen in early July at Theatre Lac Brome by a large and appreciative audience. A big thank you to all our loyal patrons who helped spread the word about this out-of-town show!
Next up Persephone is offering Blue Stockings by Jessica Swale. This is a witty and insightful play about women’s early struggles for higher education. Our production showcases 13 actors and a large technical and design team.
Blue Stockings runs from Thursday, October 17 to Sunday, October 27 at the Studio Jean-Valcourt du Conservatoire, (4750 Henri-Julien, Montreal, QC H2T 2C8). Tickets are available for purchase by calling the box office at 514-873-4031 x 313 and online.
Our current world landscape is deeply troubled; more than ever we need artistic, and creative endeavours to raise our spirits, deepen our humanity, and to rediscover a sense of purpose.
The company offers wonderful work opportunities to emerging theatre artists in Montreal. However, ticket sales cannot cover the cost of any given show. We are deeply grateful for those patrons who so generously donate to the company, and we hope that our newer patrons will also feel encouraged to make a contribution and become part of the Persephone endeavour. Together we can help these young people start their careers, while we continue to enrich the Anglo theatre scene with our work.
We have enclosed donation forms with the mailed newsletter, but, if possible, we would encourage you to make donations online at Canada Helps.
I am so looking forward to sharing the show with you. See you at the theatre!
