JAN ANDREWS JUNE 6TH, 1942 - SEPTEMBER 2ND, 2017

The last time I posted to the 2wp website, it was to talk about the new storytelling piece Jan was working on, a piece that would have seen her doing many new and for her very daring things. I grieve to tell everyone that this show won't ever come to life now. On  Sept. 2, 2017, six days after a catastrophic fall down the basement stairs, Jan, one of the two women of 2 women productions died. Some days later 250 people gathered to tell stories about  her, to laugh, to cry, to honour her work as a teller and a writer, to say goodbye.

 

Should you wish to honour Jan, one way to do  it would be to make  domation to  Storytellers of Canada/conteurs du Canada https://www.storytellers-conteurs.ca/en/donate-now.html 

There's only one woman now but for the moment 2wp will still be here. I will be doing some small projects and figuring out if there is still a way 2wp might be useful in supporting adult storytelling work.
