CORE SEASON – WORLD PREMIERE
ENBRIDGE NEW CANADIAN PLAYS

GRACIE

BY JOAN MACLEOD
A CO-PRODUCTION WITH THE BELFRY THEATRE, VICTORIA
DIRECTED BY VANESSA PORTEOUS

FEBRUARY 28 – MARCH 18, 2017

Gracie’s world is full of faith and family, but as a fifteen year-old girl born into a polygamous community, she feels increasing pressure to conform. Will she dare to take the leap and step into the outside world? In this stunning new show for one actress, we see the world through Gracie’s eyes. A gripping and tender story about growing up unusual.

“Joan MacLeod is one of Canada’s foremost playwrights. Her writing feels like the tide coming in. Gentle at first, it gradually sweeps you up, leaving you moved and changed. ATP is proud to have launched three of her plays: The Shape of A Girl, Another Home Invasion, and The Valley, all of which went on to national acclaim. I’m thrilled to direct Gracie, and honoured to work with The Belfry Theatre in Victoria, Joan MacLeod’s hometown. An exciting collaboration, a play of national significance, and a deeply human story.”

-Vanessa Porteous, Artistic Director

This play is a work of fiction, inspired by Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints (FLDS) communities in Canada and the U.S. Gracie, and all other characters and the events mentioned in the play, are works of fiction as well.
