Guarded Girls


Overview

Guarded Girls MAY 8-19, 2019 A TARRAGON THEATRE PRODUCTION IN-ASSOCIATION WITH GREEN LIGHT ARTS A new play from Governor General’s Literary Award nominee, Charlotte Corbeil-Coleman ABOUT THE SHOW Sid has been transferred all over the country and knows she's bad. Brit is in for something she claims she didn’t do. Kit has made some “bad choices” and is tormented by her secrets. The Guard has a job to do. Meanwhile, kids are growing up, waiting for bad moods to pass, and for their parents to come home. This powerful new work by Charlotte Corbeil-Coleman reveals the complex ways in which our prison system affects generations of women and how thin the line can be that separates those of us who are on the inside vs. those of us who are on the outside of Corrections. Guarded Girls was originally commissioned by Green Light Arts to humanize women navigating both sides of Canada’s Corrections system. Both Tarragon Theatre and Green Light Arts developed the play.
