Vierge

Winner, 2020 Inifinitheatre's Write-On-Q Playwriting competition 

16 year old Divine, doesn’t really fit in anywhere, and her only real friend is Jesus (Christ) — that is, until her family joins a new church and through the other girls in her youth group she discovers the world around her is not as it seems. Filled with an abundance of heart and humour, Vierge follows four Congolese Canadian teenage girls as they journey to navigate between the pressures of Christianity, virginity and teenage hormones. 

World Premiere at Factory Theatre April 2023

Isabelle and Jamal's father was incarcerated for a violent crime. Though they've lived the majority of their lives without him, the stain of his actions has been on their lives ever since. Years of resentment and pain threaten to disrupt their lives when they learn of his impending release from prison. Despite the urge to continue to sweep it all under the rug, this pair of siblings is forced to come face to face with their complicated feelings and shared family trauma.
