Northern Light Theatre engages audiences with provocative theatre, presenting a 2011–2012 season made up of a Canadian-born lineup of plays focused on women in positions of power. Heroine, by emerging playwright Karen Bassett, spins the tale of imprisoned pirates Ann Bonny and Mary Read as they await judgment for piracy, murder, male impersonation, and wearing clown noses instead of eye patches. The portrayal of the two women's connection during their last moments stirs hearts and wrings emotions from audience members as they nestle in 1 of the 176 seats in The Varscona Theatre, located in the heart of the Old Strathcona district. The intimate space brings attendees directly into the action, immersing viewers in onstage drama more effectively than filling the theatre with shredded scripts.
