My Catholic Italian family believes my mother was conceived by a virgin. The logic being that my grandparents were unmarried when it happened. Therefore: act of God, NOT of the bod. A harmless myth – until I realized I suffered from a Virgin Complex that was sabotaging my love life. Directed by Tamara Brown. Stage Manager: Elyse Quesnel. Set and Costume Design: Lara Kaluza. Lighting Design: Alexander Smith. Sound Design: Vuyo Bhembe. Dramaturgical Support: Playwright’s Workshop Montreal/Emma Tibaldo. Photo by Jaclyn Turner.
