Martha Rose Productions Presents BETWEEN THE SHEETS
Between The Sheets is returning to the Toronto stage for the first time in six years. In the age of the 'Me Too Movement', helicopter parenting, and the education system in crisis, this production is a timely, must-see addition to Toronto fall theatre.
The scene: parent-teacher night, Teresa's third grade classroom. Enter Marion, an over-worked mother who does not have a time-slot. Teresa agrees to meet with her, but what begins as an ordinary parent-teacher interview spirals into a gripping and raw confrontation. One woman is fighting to protect her family. The other is fighting for the family she always wanted.
In the current social and political climate, Between the Sheets has never been more relevant. The play deals with issues that are at the forefront: sexuality, power, and women being held accountable for men's actions; motherhood and the pressure for women to 'do it all', and school systems in chaos.
Industry veteran, Rod Ceballos (Dublin Carol, Fly on the Wall Theatre), directs this production, which reunites Jorie Morrow (Marion) and Rafaela Lewis (Teresa), who played mother and daughter in the wildly popular 2016 Toronto Fringe Production of Women (4Ns, Critic's Pick - NOW). Ms. Morrow recently appeared in Living Will at the 2018 Toronto Fringe and Ms. Lewis can next be seen in Amazon's The Romanoffs (directed by Mad Men's Matthew Weiner).
