The weekend of July 20th & 21st will see the first annual Greek Revival Theatre Festival on Pelee Island as part of Windsor Feminist Theatre’s Stone & Sky Music & Arts Series. This festival is held in the only natural stone amphitheatre in all of Canada which is festooned with mid-Devonian fossils. Saturday will see Watching Glory Die, written and directed by Judith Thompson, and Sunday’s presentation will be Doves At War, written and directed by Joey Ouellette.
Sunday will also host the dedication of the Suzanne Turnbull Memorial Amphitheatre post-performance, replete with libations to Dionysus! Beverly Suzanne Turnbull (April 22, 1948 to November 9, 2013) was a highly respected artist who dedicated her life to Canadian theatre. A graduate of the University of Alberta, Suzie‘s career encompassed acting, directing, coaching, teaching and script development at theatres and universities across the country prior to finally settling down in Stratford where she continued her career at the festival, and beyond. Humble, loyal, honest, loved and trusted by so many, Suzie will be remembered for her passionate belief in the power and importance of theatre. Suzie’s work with Windsor Feminist Theatre was instrumental in helping us to attain the professional status we embrace today.
