A Love Letter to Emily C

Sat May 11 - Sat May 11, 2019
A Love Letter to Emily C

A Love Letter to Emily C, explores the life and times of Canadian icon and artist Emily Carr.  Humorous and moving, this play is an interdisciplinary marvel like nothing you’ve ever experienced.

Fall in love with the creative brilliance of Emily Carr as she playfully interacts with her monkey Woo. A quirky dialogue between a woman and the creature she adored—it is a fusion of theatre, poetry, visual art and music.

Creative Team: Text Sheri-D Wilson, Director Trevor Schmidt, Performers Shawna Burnett & Nancy McAlear, Sound Design Peter Moller, Projections Amelia Scott, Production Design Trevor Schmidt.

“I wanted to write a play about one of my favorite Canadian artists Emily Carr — and like she envisioned doing in her art, I want it to echo with beauty and wonder, like we feel in nature...” - Sheri-D Wilson

The Big Secret Theatre is not a secret anymore and at one point it wasn't even a theatre! The space, hidden away on the +15 level of Arts Commons was originally designed to function as a lounge. In 1987, One Yellow Rabbit Performance Theatre approached Arts Commons seeking space and the lounge space was leased to them on a trial basis. Today the company calls the Big Secret Theatre their permanent home.
