WHAT

Windsor theatre-goers are about to experience a world-class production written and directed by renowned Canadian playwright and Officer of the Order of Canada, Judith Thompson. Watching Glory Die will premiere in Windsor at the Hatch Studio Theatre, Jackman Dramatic Art Centre, University of Windsor, from July 23 – 27, 2019.

This play is a riveting and compassionate exposé of three women trapped in a broken prison system. Inspired by the shocking, true story of teenager, Ashley Smith, Thompson’s work chronicles five years of misdiagnosis of mental health issues, cruel treatment and months on end in “therapeutic quiet”, followed by Smith’s death by suicide in her prison cell, while guards watched.
