The Gut Girls

THE GUT GIRLS - Part of their Retrospective Series leading up to their 100th anniversary in 2017/18, the Alumnae Theatre Company is proud to present British dramatist Sarah Daniels' THE GUT GIRLS. Surprisingly funny and hard-hitting, this beautifully written piece follows the fortunes of the proud and brash working-class gut girls. When the gutting sheds are shut and their way of life disappears, the girls must try and find a place in the new world order of late Victorian London. Commissioned to write a play that would appeal to unionized workers during the Thatcher era, Daniels’ THE GUT GIRLS explores issues of women’s and workers’ rights, the burden of social expectations, and the struggle for self-worth. PERFORMANCE DETAILS: Where: Alumnae Theatre (Mainstage), 70 Berkeley Street, Toronto. When: January 20 to February 4, 2017. Wed, Thurs, Fri and Sat 8 p.m., Sun 2 p.m. Tickets: Regular tickets are $20. Wednesday performances have 2-for-1 tickets. Sunday performances are PWYC. Flex Passes are available.
