What does it mean to “play” a woman or a man onstage?
Theatre @ York is delighted to announce its 2019-20 season, built around the theme of performing gender. This year we will present Ann Marie MacDonald’s Good Night Desdemona (Good Morning Juliet), directed by Jennifer Tarver, and Timothy Findley’s Elizabeth Rex, directed by Ted Witzel, as well as a series of other studio shows and student-led productions, including The Ashley Plays, playGround, the Devised Theatre Festival, and Scenes by Design.
