Grunts and growls. Broken clicks and howls. An aria. A solo play about birth, motherhood, and whales.

THE WAVES
 is a new play written and performed by Laura Quigley; Directed by Clea Minaker; Sonic Direction and Performance Coached by Noah Drew; Production / Stage Managed by Aurora Torok; Set and Costume Designed by Katelyn Hirst 

The Waves was written for anyone who has a mother.

Laura extensively workshopped The Waves in Toronto in 2017 with Judith Thompson and Fides Krucker  prior to be diagnosed with cancer. Unfortunately, she had to withdraw from last year's festival, but has been invited back this year. Since last summer, Laura relocated to Montreal to work as Artist in Residence at Concordia University. Because of the move, Laura engaged a new local-to-Montreal collaborative team. She is reviving the campaign to further fundraise and pay this new group pf artists.

“I am shocked by how much everything The Waves is saying about maternity and the physical voice is directly applicable, relevant and imperative to a discussion of maternity and a mother’s political voice." – Andrea Gatti, Attourney at Law, Justice Canada

"Motherhood can be incredibly alienating. I had forgotten until your reading. People need to see this play. It makes me wonder what kind of world we could be living in, if new moms actually had a voice. If we were not just surviving but supported and actually thriving."
 - Mother, reading of the Waves, 2016
