“The resulting ‘revisionist’ historical drama is tough, smart, and compelling..” – Randall King, Winnipeg Free Press

3 Females/Drama/60 minutes

Three women are shipped to the New World (Canada) on a convict ship from Britain. Molly’s journey begins with great hope of her new life, Sarah has been taken against her will and forced to leave her life behind, Rene has no illusions that as a convict her life will be much the same. All three are transformed throughout the months on board and find that their lives are changed forever. This moving piece tells a tale of Canada’s founding mothers, examining a part of history that is often left untold.

Originally read before an audience in 1998, Revisioning was first produced as part of the Festival of Original Theatre in Toronto and then given a three-week performance run at the Alumnae Theatre Studio in 1999. It has since run to sold-out houses and critical acclaim at the Winnipeg Fringe Theatre Festival.

A chapbook of the script is available at One Act Plays
