This is For You, Anna

This is for You, Anna

Collectively created by Suzanne Khuri, Ann-Marie MacDonald, Banuta Rubess and Maureen White

Directed by Chelsea Dab Hilke


Feb. 27-Mar. 7, 2015


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.

Approximate running time with no intermission: 1 hour, 10 minutes


Discussion Forum: Post-performance panel discussions or keynote speakers will be featured each evening throughout the show’s run. A range of topics will be explored such as the collective creation process, the legal arguments presented in the cases of characters Anna and Marianne, the current state of women’s shelters, blaming the victim and rape culture. Please check with the listings here or UofTtix Box Office for each evening’s post-performance programming.
