Between The Sheets (The New Groundswell Festival)

Between The Sheets is one of the three workshop productions that are part of The New Groundswell Festival – A National Festival of Contemporary Women’s Theatre. This isn’t really a review because it is a workshop production – basically a work in progress.

Having said that, Between The Sheets – written by Jordi Mand and directed by Kelly Thornton – is terrific. It’s a powerful piece of theatre. The performances by Susan Coyne and Christine Horne were perfect. If you’ve been thinking about seeing a staged reading or a workshop production this is a good place to start. It doesn’t feel like a piece in development.

The other two workshop productions in the festival are The Aftermath by Lisa Codrington and The Debacle by Ann-Marie Kerr and Susan Leblanc-Crawford.

The Industry Series is new to the festival and includes Masterclasses, workshops, and readings.

One thought on “Between The Sheets (The New Groundswell Festival)”

  1. I was fortunate to see the last performance of Between the Sheets tonight. I was surprised to find out it was only an hour long. It felt like longer, and I mean that in a good way. The story was really well written and there was an excellent dynamic between Susan and Christine. Way to go, Nightwood!
