When eighteen-year-old Ladi and her younger sister, Hasana, are kidnapped from their school by Boko Haram, they must work together to survive.

Anatolia Speaks by Kenneth Brown

Company: Poiema Productions
The ever-cheerful Anatolia addresses her ESL class. She loves being a new Canadian working at Superstore, but questions about her past in Bosnia elicit a darker story of struggle, passion, and survival. Candice Fiorentino gives a heart-wrenching performance of a play that celebrates the power of the human spirit.


At Home by Jessica Gardiner 

Company: jigtheatrecompany
#FringeFemmeTO supported!
“Who was it that said – in the Victorian era probably, and a man, of course – “The only mechanical tool ever needed by a woman is a hair pin”? He might have added that with a hair pin and a visiting card, she is ready to meet most emergencies.” – Emily Post. Set in Toronto between July 1-12, At Home uses found sources to create a new narrative.


Mixed Chick by Coko Galore

Company: Coko Galore
#FringeFemmeTO supported!
Mixed Chick is the story of Coko Galore (née Corinne Yinkuan Brou), a bi-racial woman born to an African (Côte d’Ivoire) father and a Chinese (Hong Kong) mother. Experience this thought-provoking and emotional adventure of finding one’s unique identity in a one-woman show told with plenty of heart, song and hair trauma.

#FringeFemmeTO supported!
Drinking, Dancing, Ladies Kissing: But Surprisingly Wholesome! “Rounding the Bend” is a one act musical, exploring female relationships and the blurred lines between love and friendship.

Water Choke by Elliot Maxwell

Company: Truth 'n' Lies Theatre
#FringeFemmeTO supported!
Meet Charlotte. She has a PhD in feminist philosophy, just asked her lawyer boyfriend to be her life partner, and authors a wildly famous blog about sleeping with men on the side. She has it all!  Until one of her lovers – and his entire family – crash her engagement party.  
An outrageous, sexy, fast-paced farce inspired by G.B. Shaw’s ‘The Philanderer’!
