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?
