doing working-class activities – and a performance that spark up controversy in the 60s because of its escape from the traditional morality and religion plays.
Amidst the competition from renowned theatre houses in Toronto, Studio 275 will primarily rely on traditional publicity such as the use of media release, posters and flyers as well as giving out first hand information through direct marketing to theatre schools and organizations within its reach. Its audience will be composed of women from all income brackets, regardless of their age and background. It will emphasize the plot as something that is contentious in the past and will be refreshed through Studio 275’s production that will bring your memory and interest as to what have these women of the 60s have gone through.
Studio 275 was established in 1985 with topmost priority in play development as a means of supporting Canadian playwrights and building the repertoire of Canadian plays. Moreover, the first 15 years of its existence gave emphasis on producing local works but eventually turned in producing shows that reflects the Canadian experience from many generation as well as history and sensibilities that people have brought to the country.
This season, the company will focus on series of productions featuring the different sides of women caught up in differing situations. This year’s presentation will start off with Michel Tremblay’s first professionally produced work Les Belles Soeurs (The Sisters-in-Law) directed by Judith Chapman. The story created such controversy in the 60s because of the “joual” language used by women while discussing about men, religion and Bingo. It represents the working class women in Montreal, doing working-class activities while uttering vulgar language which shocked the Quebec stage in the 60s.
