TAKING OFF

by Deborah Williams

Show Info

WORLD PREMIERE

Directed by James Fagan Tait

Middle age is tricky territory for Minnie, especially in her relationships with her husband, her children and her female friends.

WHY I CHOSE THIS PLAY 

Deborah Williams played dear, sad Sonia in Vanya and Sonia and Masha and Spike. One of the writer/performers of Mom’s the Word, this is the first play that Deborah has written on her own. We’ve been involved in the script’s development for a couple of years. I programmed this play because it speaks to our audience, and it speaks with Deb’s wry, sardonic sense of humour, and her enormous heart. MS
