The Remarkable Emily Carr - The Play

 

    The Remarkable Emily Carr - The PlayBACKGROUND:
    A 2-act, 2-hander play adapted for the stage by Susan Shillingford from the written works of Canadian artist, Emily Carr, was first produced by Whistling Fish Productions at Intrepid Theatre Studio in Victoria, BC Canada in November 2008.

    Featuring Alison Preece as the 'Younger Emily' and Susan Shillingford as the 'Older Emily', the show was directed by Geoff Noble and received a warm & positive response from audiences for its entire run.

    PLOT:
    Through the discovery of an old journal, the 'spirit' of Emily Carr (1871-1945) relives her tumultuous life, her journey as an artist, and her hard-fought-for successes in receiving recognition and support for her unorthodox approach to her work and to life.

    AUDIENCE RESPONSE:
    "A wonderful gem of a performance"...
    "A seamless and inspired telling"...
    "A lovely adaptation."
