  • In a liminal space, two estranged sisters begin a ritual. Morgan is a grad student researching witchcraft trials who has a dangerous secret; Maura is a bulimia survivor struggling to find her way. As they delve into their conflicted past, they expose each other’s fault lines. Marrow weaves words and images from witchcraft trials with the psychological landscape of two contemporary women, embracing metaphor and subverting stereotypes. After its initial production at the Vancouver Fringe Festival, Marrow toured to the Gabriola Theatre Festival in 2017 and will be presented by the Port Theatre in 2018.
    "An intelligent and complex investigation of female power and personhood"

    • "A play that does more than entertain, it challenges the audience to think... anybody who goes to see Marrow is in for a thought-provoking treat."

    • "Marrow explores eating disorders with honesty and nuance. There are no easy answers here, no easy definitions of feminism, and no easy ideas as to what it means to be a victim, what it means to be a survivor."
