Watching Glory Die  

May 15 - June 1, 2014
Berkeley Street Theatre Upstairs
Produced by
Canadian Rep Theatre

A riveting yet deeply compassionate portrait of three women, inextricably linked by shared helplessness in the face of tragedy: Glory, a troubled 19 year old inmate, incarcerated for minor offences at age 14, whose compulsive, rebellious nature leads to a non-ending, ever spiraling clash with Corrections Canada; Rose, the girl’s suburban adoptive mother desperately trying to remain connected to her daughter; and Gail, a working class prison guard, struggling to walk the line between her ‘orders’ and her conscience. Watching Glory Die takes a bold dramatic leap from recent news headlines to forge the kind of visceral lyricism that is the hallmark of Judith Thompson at her most powerful.
