“There was no justice, there was just a legal outcome”: Nightwood Theatre (Toronto) production of GRACE by Jane Doe

IFLS colleagues wrote to me with the idea that IFLS folk might be interested in this play (on in Toronto in January). Thanks to Profs. Mosher and Paccioco for the suggestion!   The tagline for the production is “There was no justice, there was just a legal outcome”.


Written by Jane Doe, Directed by Andrea Donaldson
A Nightwood Theatre production in association with Crow’s Theatre
January 8-26, 2019 at Streetcar Crowsnest (345 Carlaw Ave)

“Exquisitely told in a stunning blend of documentary theatre, striking visual projections and choreography, Grace is a searing piece that ignites a pertinent discussion on the failures and limitations of the legal system. “There was no justice, there was just a legal outcome.” In the wake of a young woman’s disclosure of childhood sexual assault, a family presses charges. A true story about survival, hope, and the pursuit of justice at a time when provability still usurps truth in our courtrooms.”

There is an “education guide” for the play here.  Nightwood is a feminist organization, the “oldest professional women’s theatre in Canada”.   Tickets here.
