“For a few months each year the women at Nightwood take a group of hard-working, analytic, often stressed-out lawyers who have careers that dictate they live most waking hours in their heads, and they teach us to live in our hearts… I have left the experience with a new passion for my life in general and inspired to make other positive choices. In short, for a few months each year, Nightwood gives us a little magic.” - Christine Marchetti, past cast member of The Lawyer Show
From June 6-8, 2020, over 40 members of the legal community took to the stage, supported by a team of professional directors, designers and vocal coaches—all while raising funds for Canada’s flagship feminist theatre, Nightwood Theatre.
