We strongly encourage actors of all ethnic backgrounds to audition.

Actors are asked to prepare one contemporary, Canadian monologue no longer than two minutes in length. Actors may be asked to do a cold read from the text.

This is for You, Anna is a haunting exploration of revenge, liberation and motherhood. Breaking the mould of contemporary theatre, it demands that we acknowledge a new perspective and a new possibility in storytelling. When it made its debut in the 1980s, it was the first of its kind: a collective creation that strove to construct a theatrical story that was wholly female. From its structure and creative process to its subject matter and performing space, This is for You, Anna is a cheekily satirical and surprisingly poignant play that stands apart even today.

Established in 1919, Hart House Theatre is the University of Toronto’s Performing Arts Leader.  Since its inception, the theatre’s unique mix of young professionals, alumni and students has garnered the theatre a reputation as a cultural destination for not only the community of U of T but also the city of Toronto.
