Foundry Theatre Company proudly presents the reading of the new play: The Spadina Monologues By Christine Estima

Play Synopsis:

What happens when your first date is on the Spadina Street car?  King is African; Queen is Portuguese/ Lebanese. Told through random anecdotes, monologues, experiences and observations, their date plays out like a consumer contemplating a new car. Witty dialogue, faced-paced sparring, and engaging characters make this is an encounter you don’t want to miss.

The writer: Christine Estima is a playwright, novelist and arts journalist.  Her writing has appeared in many local and online publications such as Now Magazine, Exclaim!, Bitch Magazine, and The Canadian Theatre Review.

The director: Richard Beaune is a critically acclaimed director who’s worked across Canada.  Most recently, he directed the award winning “The Belle of Winnipeg”, is also the winner of a Canadian Comedy Award for “Trapped in Taffeta”, and is the Artistic Director of Keystone Theatre.
