TARRAGON THEATRE’S GUARDED GIRLS PRODUCED IN-ASSOCIATION WITH GREEN LIGHT ARTS

The psychological destruction brought on by solitary confinement is at the heart of this wrenching and powerful new play.

When 19-year-old Sid is transferred to a new prison, she finds friendship with Britt — but also forms a complicated relationship with the guard who seems to be watching their every move. Soon, it’s the guard who’s being watched, and this playful, theatrical, mysterious work heads toward its shocking conclusion.

Guarded Girls was originally commissioned by Green Light Arts to humanize women navigating both sides of Canada’s Corrections system. Both Tarragon Theatre and Green Light Arts developed the play. Tarragon Theatre produced the World Premiere in Toronto, Mar 26, 2019 – May 5, 2019.
