Wendy could write about how this production of 'Night,Mother was born of a casual conversation with Catherine Lough Haggquist & Bronwen Smith at Biz Books, over ten years ago, that she has a BFA in Theatre from The University of Victoria, is a graduate of The Vancouver Playhouse Acting School or how she has appeared in one hundred plays, in roles as diverse as Lucienne (Life Savers / Ruby Slippers Theatre), Grandma Kurnitz (Lost In Yonkers / Theatre NorthWest), Rose (Unity 1918 / Touchstone Theatre), Maryjohnny (Skull In Connemara / Theatre Conspiracy), Elizabeth Cady Stanton (Woman, Idiot, Lunatic, Criminal / shameless hussy) and even Falstaff (Henry IV part II, John Juliani's Shakespeare Project), but what Wendy would really like to bring to your attention are two magnificent organizations that care for performing arts workers: The Actors' Fund of Canada and PAL (Performing Arts Lodge of Vancouver). Please support them in any way you can.
