Dig into plays from some of Toronto’s most exciting feminist playwrights and delve into lively discussion with a group of passionate theatre-lovers at Nightwood’s inaugural Feminist Play Circle. 

Hosted by Artist/Activist-in-Residence, Sedina Fiati, this intimate digital club will include personal insights from the playwrights themselves as they join in the discussion. This year’s Feminist Play Circle will explore three vital and powerful works: Body So Fluorescent, created by Amanda Cordner and David di Giovanni, Princess Pocahontas and the Blue Spots by Monique Mojica and Smudge by Alex Bulmer.
