Now You See Her
Now You See Her nominated for three Dora Mavor Moore Awards; Outstanding New Play, Outstanding Costume Design & Outstanding Sound Design/Composition.
Now You See Her named one of Toronto’s Top Ten Plays of 2018 by the Toronto Star.
Six diverse women’s voices merge into one devastating (and funny) portrait of modern feminism.
They are the invisible, the vanishing, and the disappeared. In an insurrectionary outburst of original music, words, and movement, the six characters in Now You See Her explore some of the diverse ways women fade from sight in our culture. They sing, dance, and thrust themselves into the elements as they travel through the seasons of their lives. Their voices are defiant. Their question is simple: why and how do we allow our power to disappear without a fight?
Now You See Her follows Quote Unquote Collective’s acclaimed international hit Mouthpiece.
"Now You See Her radiates wit, urgency, and theatricality. " —José Teodoro, four stars, Now Magazine
"It would be difficult to overstate how brilliantly realized and intricately crafted Now You See Her is. Everything means something, even the most casual choices are revealed to contribute to the braid of the story. If you’re not sure what theatre is for, anymore, this show will restore your faith in the art form. " —S. Bear Bergman, Mooney on Theatre
"Through text, movement, song and visual effects, the collective has crafted an extravaganza that is an assault on both the mind and the senses. ”—Paula Citron, Ludwig Van Toronto
"Now You See Her embraces diversity in aesthetic, not just in its cast. ” —Kelly Nestruck, Globe and Mail
"General stories of sexual harassment, glass ceilings, the intensity of motherhood, and body image risk coming off with an after-school-special level of depth. But Now You See Her knows that making these stories personal takes it deeper, and its creators aren’t afraid to let those details show. That’s where the real strength of Now You See Her lies…(it) layers perspectives on top of one another, especially by making the actor and the character visible at the same time. ” (3. 5/4 Stars) —Carly Maga, Toronto Star
