The Eighth Day

Co-developed by Canadian Stage and Soulpepper

Written by: Nicole Brooks
Type of presentation: Workshop reading

On one fateful night, in the burrows of a town called Little Burgundy, Montreal, one mysterious woman gathers eight women from all walks of life to take the stage to create some magic. Little did anyone know that what they conjured that night was orchestrated to change the world as they know it forever. The Eighth Day shines a spotlight on the lives of Femmes Noires (Black women) in 1928 and their lived experiences as they present their story in a very unique manner through a Burlesque show barring not only their clothes but also their souls in order to be heard and change their existence forever.

Admission is FREE. All attendees must register to attend.
