You’re about to meet one extraordinary adolescent: Claudia. Aged twelve and three quarters, she finds herself suffering from the triple afflictions of puberty, unpopularity, and her parents’ divorce. Finding refuge in the basement of her school, Claudia discovers the pain at the centre of her brimming child’s heart, while her grandfather,her father’s new girlfriend, and the school custodian, shed light on her situation. Alternately heartbreakingly sad and wrenchingly funny, I, Claudia casts a theatrical spell of rare power.
I, Claudia is a modern Canadian classic written and originally performed by Kristen Thomson. To vividly portray all four characters, Derek Kwan has brought Kristen’s masks to Taiwan for this special production. I, Claudia has toured extensively around Canada and was the winner of the 2001 Dora Mavor Moore Award (Toronto’s theatre awards) for Outstanding New Play.
A portion of the proceeds from this production will benefit Garden of Hope, a charitable organization in Taiwan focusing on women’s issues.
