Snowglobe Theatre presents The Fairies are Thirsty

Snowglobe Theatre is pleased and proud to invite you to enjoy this unique event in the company of friends and colleagues both near and far. 

This production is a preview of one we would have staged this May at MainLine Theatre. We still intend to mount the show in a theatre as soon as these extraordinary times allow, but wanted to offer this entirely online production in a show of solidarity with the artistic community in exile at home. Attendance is free, but we are taking the opportunity to reach out and ask for your support to cover our expenses, as well as fundraise for a future fully-staged production!

Marie, Madeleine, and the Statue are trapped, each in her setting, as flies in amber. Yet though they cannot touch or meet, these extraordinary women will still reach out and connect in ways they would never have expected - or imagined.

Met with cries for censorship or an outright ban at the original 1979 production, "The Fairies are Thirsty" continues to enjoy relevancy and productions to this day. This ironic, tragic and liberating work explores three women archetypes struggling with the gender politics of the Quiet Revolution in Montreal, daring us to picture a world free of regressive gender roles, and pleading with us to see women for whom and what they themselves yearn to be. 

This production of "The Fairies are Thirsty" is a translation of the original French "Les fées ont soif" by Quebec playwright Denise Boucher. 

Marie: Sabrina Auclair
