Mississauga: Theatre Erindale presents “The Glove Thief” October 24-November 3
Tuesday, October 22, 2019
Theatre Erindale’s Battlelines Season begins with the first MainStage show, Beth Flintoff’s The Glove Thief,directed by Head of Voice, Professor Meredith Scott.
The year is 1569. In a cold stone room in a Staffordshire castle, four women sew intricate tapestries, weaving their lives together. The tapestry makers express their deepest longings, their loves, and their grief, in their rich designs - escaping the castle through their craft. The strength and power these four women find in their stitching changes their own paths and that of English history.
Scott says “Beth Flintoff’s play is a political thriller that examines the crossing paths of Elizabeth I and Mary, Queen of Scots, along with the many people caught in between. Imprisoned women turn an unremarkable occupation into their secret code and a young woman finds her own artistic voice, as a ruthless battle for the throne of England plays out between two powerful Queens.”
The Glove Thief will be running at the Erindale Studio Theatre, at the University of Toronto Mississauga.
The show dates/times are as follows:
Thursday, October 24th @ 7:30pm
