Body & SoulBook - 2010
Fourteen extraordinary women from across Canada share their stories about life after forty-five in this thought-provoking play compiled by award-winning Canadian playwright Judith Thompson. In the form of a letter written to their bodies, these women share their personal stories of triumphs, tragedies, and life's funny moments, while challenging the reader to look beneath the surface of how society views beauty, aging, and women in their second act in life. Originally commissioned by Dove as a component of their campaign for real beauty, the fourteen women involved recently produced the play independently in Toronto and have been invited to the 2010 Winter Olympic Games in Vancouver as part of the cultural festivities.
