Sunday Series – The Watershed
in the Mainspace
Jenn Stephenson & Olivia Heaney discuss Annabelle Soutar’s work. Sunday Series events invite audiences to consider the artistry of play creation, and discuss pressing issues relevant to the plays in our season through films, staged readings, panel discussions, and public forums. The event is free and RSVP is not required.
Jenn Stephenson is a professor at Queen’s University. Her principal areas of research interest are in contemporary Canadian drama, metatheatricality, “theatre of the real,” autobiographical performance, and performativity in fictional worlds-within.
Olivia Heaney is a PhD Candidate and Course Lecturer in contemporary Canadian cinema and performance. Her dissertation uses approaches from ecocriticism and petroculture to explore the ways Canadian film and theatre have responded to cultural and economic precarity in the age of globalization. She has published in the Canadian Journal of Irish Studies and has worked extensively as a practitioner in the film and theatre industries.
