No White Picket Fence

No White Picket Fence is a remarkable new “verbatim play” in which all of the dialogue originates from interviews with women who have experienced the foster care system and are now living well.

Written by Whittaker, with STU Social Work professor Sue McKenzie-Mohr, the language is real and gripping.

Theatre St. Thomas actors play ten women—mostly university students or graduates in their twenties—who engage us with stories of their lives lived in and beyond care.

“Distilling hundreds of pages of interview transcripts from these amazing women has been a journey of its own,” says Whittaker, who will direct the play, which is part of a larger study by McKenzie-Mohr. 

Tickets:  $10 regular / $5 students.

7:30pm, plus 2pm matinee on Sat
