A Nightwood Theatre production in association with VideoCabaret
Written by Rose Napoli
Directed by Andrea Donaldson
April 9 – 21, 2024
The Theatre Centre – Franco Boni Theatre  (1115 Queen Street W)
Meet Margaret Cavendish, 17th-century philosopher, poet, playwright – a scandalous Jill-of-all-Trades and mistress of none. In her unapologetic pursuit of fame, Madge ditches her dysfunctional family to join the court of an unruly Queen and leave her mark on history.
Paying homage to Jane Austen and Tina Fey in the same breath, this laugh out loud contemporary-period mashup suggests that perhaps a woman’s hunger for unbridled attention is not so shallow, after all.
 **This show contains partial nudity,  crude language, and haze.
