An evening of three short plays by Hannah Moscovitch

RUN TIME:  90 mins   INTERMISSION: No    ACCESSIBLE: Yes   AGE: Adult    MEMBER TYPE: Professional

Essay (directed by Meghan Hubley, featuring Anne-Marie Kerr, Wayne Burns, and Ursula Calder), USSR (directed by Anna Shepard, featuring Ella MacDonald), and Mexico City (directed by Laura Vingoe-Cram, featuring Zach Faye and Lesley Smith) are striking, early-career examples of Moscovitch’s ear for sharp dialogue, as well as the biting social commentary that sparked her career and made her one of Canada’s best known playwrights.

With support from Arts Nova Scotia and the Canada Council for the Arts, Matchstick Theatre is thrilled to bring these 3 shorts plays, 2 of which are receiving their
Nova Scotian professional premiers (Essay and USSR), to Kjipuktuk/Halifax. Footnotes is stage managed by Chelsea Dickie and Olivia Rankin, with design by Alison Crosby
(lighting), Jordan Palmer (sound and projection), Wesley Babcock (set), and Everette Fournier (costumes). USSR features dialect consultation from Nina Rojkovskaia. Mexico City features musical accompaniment by Frederic Mujica and consultation from Santiago Guzmán.

The plays are recommended for mature audiences due to strong language and mature content.

Tickets are Pay What You Can, with all proceeds donated directly to the Bus Stop Theatre’s Inclusion Fund.
