The Pact is back in Canada!

The wonderful folks at The Edge Productions in Windsor, Ontario are teaming up with Gangway! Theatre Company in Toronto for a multi-city remount of 2017’s production of Pregnancy Pact!

The show will run in Windsor at Sho Studio from April 24-27 before moving to Bravo Academy in Toronto from May 2-11. Tickets for both cities are available now!

The production will once again be directed by The Edge’s Artistic Director Miriam Goldstein, with music direction by Sam Poole, and design by Nathaniel Cedroni and Morgan Corbett-Collins. They were a dream time the first time around, and I’m so thrilled that they’re all back with the show.

Samantha Bourque, Miranda DiPietro, and Sean Sennett return to their roles from the 2017 run (as Maddie, Brynn, and Cory/Justin, respectively.) They will be joined by Caroline Burton, Melissa MacKenzie, Anna Mazurik, and Katie Miller for the restaging.

I can’t wait to see this wonderful production again – my passport renewal is in the mail!

Pregnancy Pact @ The Edge Productions

Julia and I got back this morning from seeing Pregnancy Pact in Windsor, Ontario, produced by The Edge Productions at The Rondo. It was such a moving experience on so many levels – so amazing to see the show again (it’s been 3 years since 54 Below…), so wonderful to be flooded with memories of all the remarkable people whose hearts are in every moment of it, and beyond incredible to see strangers (now friends) take our work and bring it to vivid life. It felt like a really defining moment in my journey as a writer, and I’m so grateful!

My immense thanks go to the superstars in this picture for their dedication to our show (clockwise from the top left): Shayla Hudson (Jeanelle), Rebecca Lashmar (Jenn), Avonlea Smith (Kaylee), Samantha Bourque (Maddie), Janine Marley (Assistant Director), Sean Sennett (Cory/Justin), Nathaniel Cedroni (Set Designer), Sam Poole (Music Director), me, Julia, Olivia Ridpath (Sansanee), Miriam Goldstein (Director), Miranda DiPietro (Brynn), and Morgan Corbett-Collins (Stage Manager.)

Canada is about to get pregnant!

I’m so excited that Pregnancy Pact is being produced by The Edge Productions in Windsor, Ontario next month! Directed by Miriam Goldstein, the production runs August 14-17 at The Rondo. I’m so sad to have to miss the production – it’s such a strange and new feeling to know that my work is being performed without me there! – but anybody who’s in the Windsor/Detroit area should go and check it out… And then give me a full update!

Twan in The Times!

To round out 2016, Pregnancy Pact got a shout-out in The New York Times!

Margo & Twan, second and third from the left, in the Weston production.

Twan Baker, the baby-prop-performer extraordinaire, is currently co-starring with Margo Seibert in the Broadway production of In Transit. The two first met in our 2012 world premiere of Pregnancy Pact at the Weston Playhouse, and they’re back together as mother and child once again. I can’t wait to see them both in the show!

(The Times first referred to the show as Pregnancy Pact: The Musical, but graciously corrected the title after a quick email request.)

((Also, how fun to have worked with so many of the other wonderful people mentioned in this article!))
