More female theatre reviewers, please
Regarding Glenn Sumi’s review of the SummerWorks production of A Girl Lives Alone (NOW Online, August 12). God, do we ever need some female theatre reviewers.
This play is a harrowing look into what it is to be female and the fears women face. I’ve never felt so honestly represented.
I saw five SummerWorks shows, and this was produced at a level far beyond most professional shows in Toronto. It was polished and delicate. The amount of care involved is so far beyond the level of most festival shows. And it’s been dis- missed in your review as an average piece of work.
Why would any talented women even try in this town?
