Auditions (Edmonton): The Annotated Autobiography (Edmonton Fringe) – Pretentious Productions

Pretentious ProductionsPretentious Productions presents “The Annotated Autobiography of Leone McGregor”

A new play by Savanna Harvey premiering at the Edmonton International Fringe Theatre Festival 2016

Leone McGregor is a little-known Albertan figure. She was the first woman to graduate from the University of Alberta’s Faculty of Medicine, she was in the very first graduating class of that faculty, and she was top of her class. Later in her life, she became a practicing psychoanalyst in Europe and an advocate for women in medicine.

This play is about Leone’s story.

It is a play about how we tell stories. It is a play about why we tell stories. It is a play about who is telling the story.
