Event Notes

× Within the Glass
World premiere
by Anna Chatterton
directed by Andrea Donaldson
January 6 - February 14, 2016 (Opens January 13)

Two very different couples meet after a critical mistake at a fertility clinic: a fertilized egg has been implanted into the wrong woman. Over the course of a tense and absurd evening, they fight to determine the uncertain future of their families. This extraordinary pregnancy forces each of them to reassess their relationships, the depths of their desire to parent, and their hopes for the future - asking each person what they are willing to give up in the pursuit of a child. Anna Chatterton, a Tarragon Playwright-in-Residence, makes her Tarragon debut with this comic drama; her many other credits include works for The Canadian Opera Company (Swoon), and World Stage/Harbourfront Centre (Voice-Box) as well as Stitch for urbanvessel/The Theatre Centre and Breathe for Soundstreams. As a founding member of award-winning theatre company Independent Aunties, she co-wrote and performed in its acclaimed Clean Irene & Dirty Maxine and Breakfast, both presented by Buddies in Bad Times Theatre.
