P4W: Invisible Stories from Canada’s Prison for Women

Texte et mise en scène de Julia Ainsworth
Avec Carolyn-Fe Trinidad, Catherine Lemieux, Janice Wu, Ari Cohen, Manuel Sinor, and Koby Rogers Hall

The only building to house Canada’s federally sentenced women was known to inmates and correctional officers simply as “P4W”. From 1934 to 2000, the Prison for Women received public scrutiny from repeated investigations, and finally a federal inquiry that led to the closure of the then notorious institution. But the issues that led to its shutting down are far from resolved for the cases of federally sentenced women in Canada.

Now, ten years later, playwright and director Julia Ainsworth brings a thoughtful and unprecedented play to the lives and daily struggles for these women. In January 2010, Zeitgeist Theatre Collective, in association with Mischief Theatre, will bring audiences beyond the walls of P4W and into the hearts and minds of the women who lived there.

Inspired by actual events and interviews with incarcerated women, this workshop production of P4W: Invisible Stories from Canada’s Prison for Women is a site-specific piece performed in a promenade setting. Audience will journey through the cells and ranges of the prison, encounter inmates and correctional officers, and come in contact with a world that is seldom examined and rarely spoken about.
