zona pellucida

Within the folds of the zona pellucida, rapt in a somnambulous state, the “accused” begins to believe she is capable of the crimes with which she has been charged, and that perhaps, somehow, she has indeed carried out some horrific transgressions.

We premiered zona pellucida in Calgary in 2006 at the Big Secret Theatre. Subsequently we presented it in Montreal, Buenos Aires, Halifax, Winnipeg, Toronto and Victoria.
