Kate Hennig, author
Kate Hennig is a multi-award-winning theatre artist: a playwright, performer, teacher, and associate artistic director of the Shaw Festival. Kate’s first published play, The Last Wife, which premiered at the Stratford Festival in 2015, was met with rave reviews and has had six subsequent productions with another four productions scheduled. The Virgin Trial, the second play in the Tudor queens series, played to sellout audiences, critical acclaim, and an extended run. Kate is currently writing Mother’s Daughter, which will round out the trilogy. Kate adapted Oscar Wilde’s stories for children as Wilde Tales for the 2017 Shaw Festival season. Born in England and raised in Alberta, she lives and writes in Stratford, Ontario.
- What lies just beneath the surface of the continually gripping storyline of political intrigue, torture, and the loss of one’s freedom is Hennig’s beautifully realized exploration of victim shaming, sexual consent and the ability of young girls becoming women to rise above and ultimately master their dilemma. - Geoff Dale, Stratford Beacon Herald Link to review
- Winner of the 2017 Carol Bolt Award
