For the last several months WJT has been working developing new works with a select group of playwrights through workshops and dramaturgical support, and we are excited to finally show excerpts from that work. We will be streaming excerpts from 5 new plays on our YouTube Channel for free from January 18th to 24th.

Starring Mariam Bernstein

Karola Siegel fled Germany on the Kindertransport, joined the Haganah as a sniper in Israel, survived as a single mother in New York City, and eventually became North America’s most iconic sex therapist: Dr. Ruth Westheimer. Told with heart and plenty of humour, this play delivers a tour-de-force performance chronicling the life of an extraordinary woman. Mariam Bernstein, who won the 2019 Winnipeg Theatre Award for Outstanding Leading Actress for playing the legendary Dr. Ruth, returns to dazzle audiences for this digital revival.
