In Conversation with Margaret Atwood and Ann-Marie MacDonald

Canadian Stage

Thank you to these Canadian legends for a hilarious off-the-cuff "In Conversation!"

An excellent mic-check performance from host Roland Gulliver (Director of the Toronto International Festival of Authors) catapulted audiences straight into a delightful evening chat with Margaret Atwood and Ann-Marie MacDonald. So many great stories from their literary and theatre-making careers, reminiscing the good ol' dancing days, dropping a windmill movement routine, and sharing some cabbage prop mishaps.

We loved listening to your candid conversations at the Berkeley Street Theatre. Thank you to everyone who joined us at the stage adaptation of Ann-Marie's Fall On Your Knees!
