If you're in Toronto, you might be reading some press on the Summerworks Festival which is undergoing a bit of controversy due to their programming. (Enough kerfuffle to make a FPP, which I can't do, but you can!) In any case, I am performing in the Canadian premiere of a new play called Souvenirs of Home by Elyne Quan at the festival. Come, if you can. It's a lovely piece with a fresh point-of-view from a skilled writer. $10, various times. Here's the poster! Here's a preview piece!
Souvenirs of Home
by Elyne Quan
At the SummerWorks Festival
The Theatre Centre
1087 Queen Street West
Toronto, ON

In 1964, in the small town of Whitewood, Saskatchewan, the lives of a young Chinese girl, her overprotective mother and a concerned neighbour intersect with surprising and tragic consequences. Inspired by true events, this is a haunting story of isolation and longing in a small immigrant community.

Come see the Canadian premiere of "Souvenirs of Home" by Elyne Quan.
