Trial Card

From Africa to Cuba to Europe, award-winning Theatre Asylum premieres thought-provoking contemporary theatre by and about women and humanist issues from the inter/national repertoire.

The name was chosen for its dual meaning; an asylum as a place of madness, danger, and the unexpected, and also one of refuge, trust and process. Our approach emphasizes research and dramaturgy and an image-driven, physical staging style.  

Equal representation for women is practiced. The company publishes a program booklet to accompany each production to raise awareness about the writer and the play, and also develops new Canadian plays.
