Director Marisa Smith was inspired to adapt George Bernard Shaw’s classic text and produce it in the heart of the DTES from her experience working in a women’s shelter. The play, written in 1893, held a timely message considering that the federal government was still deciding on new sex trade legislation during the run.

Fortunately/unfortunately, I got so wrapped up in this project, that I didn’t take any pictures of the completed costumes (what you see above are still works in progress).

Recognition and great respect for Laura Fukomoto, costume assistant, the right hand to my left.
