Oct. 13: Illusion by Merccedes de Acosta, American 1928
Directed by Jean Randich, Featuring Amelia Workman*, Peter O'Connor, Roya Shanks*
"The grass is always greener," as the saying goes... Maggie lives at the edges of society in Vancouver hoping to find a better life--happier, healthier, better somehow. When a well-heeled man from Long Island marries her and takes her East to a Gatsby-esque life on the North Shore, the trappings are different. Very different. Or so it seems. Where does the dream end and reality begin? Is life all just one big illusion.

SHE SAID / HE SAID - Hedda Gabler: LeGalliene vs. Granville-Barker
Over the years, critics, producers, publishers, and often even audiences have said, “men just write better than women.” Airmid’s lecture/performance series examines the similarities and differences in translations of the theatrical canon, by translators of different genders, such as Hedda Gabler under the hand of Eva LeGalliene versus the better known, more often taught as well as produced translation by Harley Granville-Barker. This program seeks to dispel the belief that women are not as capable as men artistically, while illuminating the differences between the female and male “voice” and point of view in theatrical works.
This first SHE SAID/HE SAID uses both live performance and film clips from productions of HEDDA GABLER under the hand of Eva LeGalliene vs. Harley Granville-Barker.
Special guests: Dr. Michael Zelenak and Dr. Joan Templeton along with Airmid's literary and dramaturgical teams and actors will come together to present this one of a kind discussion performance program.
