It’s true, I’ll be reading at this play reading.
I’ll also have a costume on display.
In celebration of International Women’s Day
Alley Theatre invites you and a guest to our Staged Reading of
MRS. WARREN’S PROFESSION
An evening of wine, appetizers, art and literature to shine light
on a story not often told.
In benefit of PACE Support Services and WISH Drop-In Centre.
Come explore with us the current relevance of this classic play and help us create dialogue within the arts community, the professional world, and our community at large about what it means to be a woman today, what women sex trade workers experience in our society and what we can do to foster respect, equality and hope in our community.
Admission is by donation.
Complimentary wine and appetizers will be served.
All proceeds to benefit PACE Support Services and WISH Drop-In Centre.
The benefit reading will also serve as a showcase of Alley Theatre’s vision for a 2013 full production of Mrs. Warren’s Profession and include some of Vancouver’s most exciting actors: Kerry Sandomirsky, David Marr,
Daniel Arnold, Eric Keenleyside, Patrick Keating, and Nita Bowerman
with preliminary set and costume.

Alley Theatre is an award-winning, non-profit theatre company that has been producing “site-specific” and “created-space” theatre since 2008 in Vancouver, BC. Past productions include Confessions, Tape, Wicked Shorts and Lost in Place. We strive to create theatre that “makes the invisible visible” by seeking out stories that shine light on characters not often heard from in society and by bringing our audience directly into
