Written in the Body: Act II


Jan is about to take a leap off the proverbial artistic cliff. She's planning a second act to her acclaimed show, Written in the Body. Act II is called Dreaming Big. Together the two acts will form a new entity titled Who Wants the Dress?

Those of you who have seen Written in the Body will know it ends on a note of possibilities presenting themselves. Dreaming Big is about what happens next.

Jan will do things she's never done on a stage before. She'll sing, she'll probably dance. She'll certainly put on the top hat and tails she so desperately wanted to believe she might some day own when she was that child growing up in 50s Britain, longing so desparately to be a boy. 

Work is on-going so watch this space. Thanks for support are offered in abundance to The Collaborations program of the Theatre Department of the National Arts Center; also to Storyteling Toronto for the Alice Kane Award.
