2007 / 2008 Season

Femmes Fatales Showcase

Each season, Ruby Slippers Theatres' Femmes Fatales series showcases a visionary heroine from the world stage, a woman who creates and performs her own work.

Firehall Arts Centre and Ruby Slippers Theatre presented Living Shadows: A Story of Mary Pickford, written and performed by Tracey Power, and directed by Brian Dooley October 24 - Nov 3, 2007 at the Firehall Arts Centre.

There's something winning about this sepia portrait of a woman who gave up everything for a 2-D image of herself. - Edmonton Journal/Liz Nichols
You won't want to miss a moment of Power's performance. She plays Mary with a wide-eyed innocence and enthusiasm that is simultaneously evocative of silent film acting and entirely natural - and completely engrossing. - CBC Winnipeg/Joff Schmidt
