Nicole Moeller and her new work The Mothers was one of 6 plays selected across Canada to take part in the Nightwood Theatre’s New Groundswell Festival: A National Festival of Contemporary Women’s Theatre. Nightwood Theatre is a Toronto based company which forges creative alliances among women artists from diverse backgrounds in order to develop and produce innovative Canadian Theatre.
The submission call went out to female artists in Canada in February 2014. The play was read on Friday, September 12 in the Dancemakers Studio in Toronto’s Distillery District, directed by Leah Cherniak, and performed by Patricia Fagan.
An incredible and beneficial opportunity, Nicole reports the reading went extrememly well and was invaluable to the development process of the play, and herself as an artist.
The Mothers will have its world premiere as part of SkirtsAfire 2015, February 26 – March 5, 2015.
