A Love Letter to Emily C, explores the life and times of Canadian icon and artist Emily Carr.  Humorous and moving, this play is an interdisciplinary marvel like nothing you’ve ever experienced.

Fall in love with the creative brilliance of Emily Carr as she playfully interacts with her monkey Woo. A quirky dialogue between a woman and the creature she adored—it is a fusion of theatre, poetry, visual art and music.

Creative Team: Text Sheri-D Wilson, Director Trevor Schmidt, Performers Shawna Burnett & Nancy McAlear, Sound Design Peter Moller, Projections Amelia Scott, Production Design Trevor Schmidt.

“I wanted to write a play about one of my favorite Canadian artists Emily Carr — and like she envisioned doing in her art, I want it to echo with beauty and wonder, like we feel in nature...” - Sheri-D Wilson

In the Big Secret Theatre (Arts Commons, 225- 8th Ave SE, Mezzanine Level)
