8 Stops

She is the author of numerous plays, including Imagining Madoff, Turquoise, and Bringing the Fishermen Home, as well as 10 solo performance plays which she has toured throughout the US, the most recent of which is 8 Stops, a comedy concerning the grief of endless compassion! 8 Stops takes a long, humorous, tender look at motherhood, the suburbs, the fear of death, and the inheritability of ideas. Deb was honored with an OBIE award for Sustained Excellence of Performance and the 2005 Richard H. Broadhead Prize for teaching excellence at Yale University, where she is Associate Professor (adj.) in the undergraduate Theater Studies Program. She lives in New Jersey, which she denies.

Canadian Play Readings

Je me souviens les femmes de théâtre de Canada – I remember women theater artists from Canada A performative bilingual project: “happenings” of scenes, monologues, theatrical snippets and flashes by Canadian/Quebecois women playwrights of the 20th century. Funny, sad, tragicomic, angry, celebratory – all feminist – the scenes and monologues chosen are meant to refresh, unearth, keep alive the theater work of some of the most vibrant and provocative Canadian women playwrights of the last century and to imbue the conference spaces with their powerful spirit and voices.

Reading locations will be a surprise, so if you suddenly hear voices as you move from session to session, pause and give a listen to some of the strongest feminist voices among Canadian playwrights.

Judith Thompson Reading Her One-Woman Play, Watching Glory Die

Description | A riveting yet deeply compassionate portrait of three women inextricably linked by shared helplessness in the face of tragedy, Watching Glory Die takes a bold dramatic leap from recent news headlines in Canada to forge the kind of visceral lyricism that is the hallmark of Judith Thompson at her most powerful.
