Revolution They Wrote: Short Works Feminist Theatre and Performance Festival presented in partnership with MainLine Theatre is a 4-day event that aims to present new feminist works. With these works, we create an artistic space that is primed to educate, provoke and inspire change both on the stage and in our daily lives.

In Magnify! Jacqueline van de Geer explores the process of aging through spoken word and movement. Our body is our home, a home that one day we have to leave, a home that one day will leave us. Magnify! honours our body, our bones, our skin and our heartbeats.

Coming Soon

Travelling all the way from Rojava, Lady Jîyan brings you the finest sounds of Kurdistan, inviting you into her world of pop stardom, womxn fighters, and shadow theatre; the magical, the performative, and the hallucinatory. A one-woman interdisciplinary show curious about Middle-Eastern feminism, brownness, Kurdish-Canadian identity, and survival.

Sarah Millican, one of the biggest stars in UK comedy, returns to Montreal with an hour of new material ahead of her next tour. This is a rare chance to see Sarah’s new work in progress show before she hits the road. She will bring jokes, if you bring laughs. It will be rough and ready and very, very fun.

In this most Canadian of events, a lineup of scintillating SORRYtellers come to confess their trespasses against others in this unusual twist on a storytelling event. Over two hours, this apology anthology will leave you wanting to get your own guilty burdens off your chest. And you can! If you are interested in contributing to this communal confessional, please email the organizers at inconsolablecat@hotmail.com with MY BAD in the subject heading and a brief summary what you did.
