Guarded Girls
by Charlotte Corbeil-Coleman
directed by Richard Rose
March 26, 2019 – May 05, 2019
A new play from Governor General’s Literary Award nominee.
The psychological destruction brought on by solitary confinement is at the heart of this wrenching and powerful new play. When 19-year-old Sid is transferred to a new prison, she finds friendship with Britt — but also forms a complicated relationship with the guard who seems to be watching their every move. Soon, it’s the guard who’s being watched, and this playful, theatrical, mysterious work heads toward its shocking conclusion.
After Toronto performances, Guarded Girls is presented by Green Light Arts at the Registry Theatre, Kitchener.
Audience Advisory: Guarded Girls contains mature content, issues relating to suicide, nudity, and strobe lighting.
